One of the greatest gifts I’ve received in the pursuit of wholeness with God at the center has been a hunger for His Word and presence. To know Him more deeply, not just know about Him. As truth would have it, I quickly discovered that to know God meant a willingness to know myself. This can be scary but also freeing! We are loved and cherished for who we are not who we wish we were. But God loves us too much to leave us there! Through this journey of intimacy with God and greater self-awareness I have sought to become a listener. A listener of God first, through His Word and Spirit, then a listener of others and, with His help, a listener of my own body, soul, spirit and emotions. This has led to the development of a conference / retreat where we seek God as we look at living in balance physically, spiritually and emotionally and learn from the narratives of scripture what Jesus would have us do and be.
Options for ReFresh events can also be arranged for single-day, half day or evening events.

Leaving A Legacy: Kate explores the rich inheritance we have in Christ and how we can, through living a life of surrender, leave a legacy through the Word, Prayer, Love and Hope.
The Unique Call Of The Artist: Kate shares the biblical mandate and unique call of the artist and helps artists to explore their specific skill set, ways God is using their art, life experiences and passions to discover their unique contribution and calling where all of these elements intersect.
Creative Songwriting: Kate explores the creative process of songwriting from the initial gathering of ideas to the finished product. Perfect for creative groups of all kinds. Kate also does a simpler version of this as an introduction to songwriting in school settings, where the goal is to finish and perform the song by the end of the school day!
Worship Leading / Solo Instrumentation, Improvisation In Worship: Kate speaks at worship conferences on a variety of topics regarding women in worship, worship leading, writing worship songs, and solo instrumentation in worship. Kate is also available to work with your worship team and trouble shoot areas of need and development.
Six Feet Down Events
Based on my latest CD, Six Feet Down, this event starts with a full concert that weaves in my story of brokenness and God’s restoration through song and sharing. Done with integrity and moments of gentle humor, this event is designed to bring hope out of the ashes and help unlock doors for those who are working through a history of heartache, abuse, divorce, childhood trauma, addiction, domestic violence, eating disorders and more. This can be an evening / half-day event with a question and answer time, or follow-up with an additional day of practical teaching on walking the healing journey.

"This is the first time we have had a speaker who also led worship at our women's retreat. The result was a wonderful mix of updated classics & original songs that hauntingly echoed the reflective messages presented at each session. Kate also was accessible & approachable to our women, which fostered deeper conversations outside of the structured time together. “ Sherry Ehrle, Women’s Director, Gateway Church, Camas, WA
“We love Kate and her ministry. We’ve had her come to our church as a Guest Artist and Worship Leader multiple times, and her retreats (Leaving A Legacy and ReFresh) have been both restful and powered by the Holy Spirit.” Women’s Director, Centralia Church Of The Nazarene, Centralia, WA
