Conference Hosts

Leanne Matthesius alongside her husband Jurgen are the Lead Pastors of Awaken Church, a multi-campus and multi-generational church in the USA. Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine, and refreshingly humorous. She moves powerfully in the anointing seeing many released and set free from the bondage and limitations keeping them from becoming all that God has designed them to be. Leanne uses personal stories and testimonies to connect with people on a very real level. Her prophetic insight and practical down to earth ministry style will ensure her audience is refreshed, equipped and empowered to take on all that life has to offer.

Gillian Burchell is a wife, mom, and Pastor. She has 3 Children and 4 Grandchildren and along with her husband, Mark, has been leading Champions Church in the West Midlands, UK for over 34 years.  She has a contagious passion for God’s Church and a desire to see people become all they were created to be. Her ability to communicate, whether through a microphone or a book continues to lift people’s lives to another level.
