In addition to your Sisterhood of Stepmoms’ Team, the following ladies will be joining us for Dallas 2017.

 

Worship Leader

Julie Elias is a multi-faceted singer, songwriter, actress and speaker who is based just outside of Dallas, Texas.

She combines a spirit of worship with musical influences that include Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, Christina Perri and even some hints of 80s rock, and Julie’s sound is sure to stand out to listeners. “Good music is good music. God has given me a huge responsibility with this platform and I want to bring a sense of purpose and artistic quality to my music that makes even non-believers go ‘wow, that was really good.’ Music moves people in ways other things can’t. The potential to reach people through great music with a message of God’s love is huge. I consider it a massive privilege and I can’t wait for what He has planned next.”
