With darkness enveloping this world like never before, we need faith for the future. During the plenary sessions, our speakers will offer biblical truths that will offer hope, courage and faith to hold fast during these last days.
For thirty years of intense ministry to those bound in sexual sin, Steve Gallagher has led thousands of desperate souls into an encounter with the Cross. This experience has given him deep insight into the human heart and the unseen spiritual realm that surrounds us. Steve’s burden is to see believers purified and possessed by the power of God. His messages impart an eternal perspective and call Christians to a deeper life in God.
Dave’s spiritual journey began in the early 70’s as a drug addict in Cincinnati, Ohio. He found the Lord in a Christian drug rehab program, where he worked for several years after graduation. But it was at the Zion Faith Homes, which he entered as an intern in 1976, that he came to know God in such a powerful way. When Dave speaks about the things of God, it is quickly evident that he knows the Lord on a very deep level.
Dustin Renz is a graduate of Southeastern University. Prior to entering Pure Life Ministries in April 2010, he and his wife, Brittany, served as Missionary Associates in Macedonia for sixteen months.

After college he worked both as a worship leader and also as Counselor Support Staff at a residential treatment facility for juvenile sex offenders. He has served in our Media Department since he came on board in 2009. Nate is very passionate in his desire to see young people come into a real life with God.
Kathy co-founded Pure Life Ministries in 1986. For over 20 years, she ministered to wives of men who struggle with sexual sin. Married women greatly appreciate her testimony about how the Lord called her to stand with her husband through the most painful ordeal of her life. When she speaks of God’s grace to sustain a person through trials, it is obvious that she is speaking from experience.
Worship and Prayer Time
This year the staff of Pure Life Ministries decided to loosen the schedule a little to provide attendees more room for personal time of fellowship with the Lord and each other. For instance, on Friday evening we will have a special worship service, followed by a time for intercessory prayer for those individuals and couples who desire it. Our hope is that the relaxed schedule will make this year’s conference a more spiritual and enjoyable experience for all!
Alumni & Friends Benefit Banquet
The conference concludes with an evening of fellowship, food, and fun at our Alumni & Friends Benefit Banquet. Festivities will begin with a 30th Anniversary reception hour where you’ll have opportunity to get acquainted with fellow ministry partners and staff members. You’ll be treated to a wonderful evening including a delicious meal, an engaging multimedia program and the inspiring Live-In student choir.
