You’re invited to The Gathering—a place where girls of all generations gather together to grow and go!

Is there more to life? This is a question that has run through the minds of many. You have most likely found yourself asking this question at some point in time. 

Throughout the evening, we’ll explore what it looks like to experience the “more to life” God has for you. You’ll hear from remarkable women, like our keynote speaker, Jo Saxton, who is a global author, speaker, podcast host, and leadership coach. It will be a fun-filled night with opportunities to find community and ways to make a difference in the world. Oh, and don’t forget about the afterparty with treats, photo booths, and some fun surprises.

This is an invitation to begin exploring your unique purpose. Come, experience the more to life that God has for you. It won’t be the same without you.

Dine with Us Before the Event and Don’t Miss the Afterparty!

Grab some of your best gal pals and head on over to either the Generous Cafe for some fun snacks and drinks or The Grill, Calvary Chapel’s on-campus restaurant, for dinner before the event. Reservations can be made here. After the event, be sure to stick around for an afterparty filled with music, merch, and other activities to get excited about.

Introducing Our Speaker: Jo Saxton

Jo Saxton is an author, speaker, podcast host, and leadership coach. She has dedicated her career to growing leadership teams around the world and empowering women to find their purpose in their personal lives and in leadership.

Born in London to parents who immigrated from Nigeria, Jo credits her family’s unrelenting work ethic and the grace of God for the bold, tenacious approach she takes to sharing her wisdom on identity, influence, and living an authentic life. She is characterized by her effervescent honesty and warm approachability, leaving audiences with practical next steps in areas that are usually a bit ambiguous.

In her latest book, Ready to Rise: Own Your Voice, Gather Your Community, Step into Your Influence, Jo tackles the real-life issues women face—workplace harassment, sexism, low self esteem, financial woes, power battles, and old wounds—to help move women beyond disempowerment and together to grow their grit. While providing meaningful wisdom from her own journey to leadership, Jo also adds stories of empowered women from the Bible. Readers will be empowered to change their landscape and build new communities where diverse female leadership can flourish.

Her previous book, More than Enchanting: Breaking Through Barriers to Influence Your World, discusses the role of women in church and society. While her book, The Dream of You: Let Go of Broken Identities and Live the Life You Were Made For helps readers address their past, accept their identity, and learn how to create a legacy they want. In addition to work as an author, Jo has also spearheaded an initiative aimed to help women grow their leadership skills. 

Jo lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Chris, and their two daughters. To learn more about Jo, visit her website.
