The Conference

Colour Conference is a global women’s gathering, hosted in Sydney, London, Cape Town, New York, Los Angeles, Kiev and Moscow by Bobbie Houston and the Hillsong Church team. Attended by thousands of women annually, the mandate for the past 24 years has been to place value upon everyday women of all ages, background and culture.

As a movement, the Colour Sisterhood has inspired women around the world to rise up, champion womanhood in all its magnificence and partner together in advocating for justice and social change.

The Colour experience is always full of fun, life and creativity – with a strong humanitarian mandate towards the issues that women face around the world. Its appeal is far-reaching and it has proven a perfect and inspiring getaway for girls from all walks of life.

Our Guests

Joining Bobbie and the Hillsong teams in 2020 are guests Leanne Matthesius, Ann Voskamp, Priscilla Shirer and Nicola Douglass

Bobbie Houston.
Bobbie is passionate about seeing all people find Jesus as their saviour, gain a revelation of their value in Him and rise up to make a stand for justice on the earth. She is a beloved pastor with a prophetic teaching gift, and has redefined the face of “women’s ministry”, raising up a strong and capable company of women through a local Hillsong Sisterhood, global Colour Sisterhood and the flourishing annual Colour Conference that take place across five nations. Find out more about Bobbie Houston on Instagram @bobbiehouston.

Leanne Matthesius (Sydney, USA, Cape Town & London).
Leanne, along with her husband Jurgen, is the senior pastor of C3 Church San Diego, a thriving church in Southern California. Leanne’s ministry style is wonderfully feminine and refreshingly humorous. She moves powerfully in the anointing, seeing many set free from the 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 down-to-earth ministry style is refreshing and empowers you to take on all that life has to offer. Leanne has four children and has been in full-time ministry for over 25 years.

Ann Voskamp (Sydney & London).
Ann is the author of four The New York Times bestsellers: The Broken Way, The Greatest Gift, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift and One Thousand Gifts, which has sold over one million copies and has been translated into more than 20 languages.

Named by Christianity Today as one of the 50 women most shaping culture and the church today, Ann’s the co-founder of We Welcome, an organisation helping refugees rebuild their lives, and is a passionate and vocal advocate for the marginalised and oppressed around the globe, partnering with The Justice Conference, Mercy House Global and Compassion International. Ann is married to a farmer and has seven children.

Priscilla Shirer (NYC).
Priscilla Shirer is the founder of Going Beyond Ministries and hosts Awaken, an outreach event in her hometown of Dallas, Texas, designed to encourage and mobilise local women. Going Beyond Ministries equips believers through books and Bible-study resources, to not only understand God’s word but for all to experience His power.

Priscilla has authored over a dozen video-driven studies for women and teens on a myriad of Biblical characters and topics, including Jonah, Gideon, discerning God’s voice and the armour of God.

Nicola Douglass (Kiev).
Nicola is the campus pastor of Hillsong Melbourne. Together with her husband Tim, they brought their young family along for the adventure of pioneering in this culturally vibrant city. They have seen Hillsong Melbourne experience incredible growth in the last five years. From a lounge room gathering of 31 people, this campus now hosts 14 services across four locations.

A profound and masterful Bible teacher and preacher, Nicola is passionate about helping people of all ages understand and live out the word of God, come to know Jesus and realise their potential.

THE SISTERHOOD is a story of God’s daughters on the earth, changing their “here and now” and looking to the future with expectation that God can and will use them to make a difference. At the core of the Sisterhood movement is a message of value and a genuine desire for women to “unite in friendship and cause” in order to bring hope where hope has been lost.
