2019 Women of influence Conference

November 15-16, 2019 | Providence, RI

“What are those quiet whispers of vision and dreams? What purpose has He put in your heart? There is something you are supposed to be doing. There is something with your name on it. There is somebody who needs your voice. There is a movement that needs your mind. There is a design that needs your touch - history that needs your mark. Jesus is calling you to rise up out of - all that holds you down - He says Daughter it’s time to rise. He stands mighty in your midst. Putting it altogether, fashioning a heart of strength – a warrior is being formed. The mighty Warrior in your midst is forming a warrior heart within you. Let’s do it, let’s Courageously Rise.”
(Isaiah 41:13, Deuteronomy 31:6-8)

Keynote Speakers


Hosanna Wong is an author, pastor, and spoken word artist, sharing stories of freedom and hope with churches, conferences, and events around the country year-round. 

Her stories and teachings are rooted in her upbringing on the streets of San Francisco, her first-hand experiences with loss, hope, and redemption, and her innermost desires to see lives healed and restored through the truth and power of Jesus. 

Hosanna is the Associate Teaching Pastor at EastLake Church in the San Diego area, and the Executive Director of Calvary Street Ministries, an outreach bringing hope to the homeless in San Francisco. Under the name Hosanna Poetry, she has released two spoken word albums Maps, Boots, & Other Ways We Get There (2013), and Figless (2015), and authored 2 books, I Have a New Name (2017) and Superadded (2018). Hosanna will appear on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s Better Together (Season 1), set to air April 2019.

When not on the road, she and her husband Guy, a pastor at EastLake Church, can be found living simple, superadded lives, grilling chicken wings and gardening too many plants in their outdoor patio.


Rev. Vanessa Hall is a proud Texas girl both from birth and in spirit. Vanessa is an ordained Christian minister with nearly 20 years of ministerial experience, and holds a master of management degree in Human Resources and bachelor in Business and Communications. She has led a diverse career and ministry path. She is the author of Emotions - Up Some Days, Down Other Days. She launched Disgrace to His Grace Ministries and Grace Matters Ministries featuring a Bible teaching radio broadcast that aired in seven states in 2012. From 2014-2018, Vanessa served the South Texas AG District Women’s Director. Vanessa is currently the owner of SHAPES Fitness for Women in Spring, TX, where they help ladies get healthy and fit from the inside out. She also currently serves as the CONNECT Director at the Lone Star Cowboy Church, a fellowship of Assemblies of God in Montgomery, TX.

My favorite recreational past times are talking to my friends on the phone, and taking long walks plugged in to my music. Vanessa is married to Kenneth Hall, and has three adult sons – Andrew, and Jordan & Joshua (twins).
