The Conference
 
Strength to Reign is a life-giving, empowering women’s conference hosted in Kamloops, British Columbia by Bible Truth Church. God has raised up a group of incredible women who are being launched into freedom, community and purpose. The title of this year’s conference is CROWNED. The heart and vision is to inspire and challenge women to walk in the fullness of their identity as God created them to be.e
 
The conference experience is full of encouragement, connection, fun and creativity. Our incredible teams make every attendee feel welcomed and loved through every excellent detail. Women of all ages, backgrounds and cultures come together to know God, find freedom, discover purpose and make a difference.
 
 
 
 
Rita Springer
Through the last few decades, Rita has carried a powerful mantle and anointing to create atmospheres of worship through her songs and various recordings and has remained extremely influential in the Church.  Rita has recorded numerous albums such as Love Covers, Created to Worship, All I Have, I Have to Believe, and her latest project Battles, featuring her well -known worship song “Defender”.  She recently released her first book, Finding Eve.
 
With her songs like the gut wrenching “Worth It All” to the simplistic cry of “All I Need”, Rita is able to draw listeners into a place of intimate worship with God. Rita and her son Justice reside in Dallas, TX where Rita is Worship Pastor at Gateway Church, leads DIVE (Deep-Innovative-Vertical-Expression) Worship Creative school, and continues to travel and lead worship all across the world.
 
Rita’s anthem and her deepest desire is to make Christ famous through the art, act, and physical sound of worship and to see this arise throughout the body of Christ.  If you ask what she most desires in her heart, she will tell you: “To make the Lord famous in whatever I do with my worship and relationship with Him.”
 
 
 
Dana Goodman
Dana Goodman is a published author and professional counsellor living in Kamloops, BC. Dana has degrees in English Literature, education and counselling.
 
She is a wife, a mom and a nana.  Although much of her life has been marked with great sorrow, after losing her first husband to cancer in 2002 and her oldest son to a brain tumour in 2010, God has taught her much during her night seasons and has been her closest friend.  She has found life, love, passion, humour and delight spring forth from the most unsuspecting places, often the barren, broken places of her life.  Dana’s journey is proof of God’s love, shaping beauty out of what looks like nothing but ruin.
 
Dana is passionate about the importance of being with people on their life journeys, present and fully focused as much as possible.  She believes that gratitude, forgiveness (of self and others) and self-compassion are keys to healing.
 
In her free time, she loves spending time with Jesus in nature or cozied up on the couch with a journal in hand.
Bryar Strutt
Bryar has a passion to mobilize women across this nation to mark their world for Christ.  She has had the privilege of ministering across our nation at events and churches as a worship leader and speaker.  Her vision and passion is to see her city won for Christ by raising up leaders who know God, live in His freedom, discover their purpose and make a difference.
 
Bryar lives in Kamloops, British Columbia with her husband Jonny and their 3 children where they are co-leading a thriving and growing church.  She oversees BTC’s Strength to Reign women’s conference in Kamloops and has recently initiated a movement called The Launch Project which is launching many women into community, freedom and purpose.
