EVERYWOMAN YOUTH

The Everywoman Gathering truly is an all-inclusive event spanning across all age groups. It is a particularly impacting time for our Youth girls who join the main conference for Friday night, where they can be amongst their older sisters, mothers, aunts, grandmothers and mentors, and then step into their own custom Youth gathering on Saturday.
In 2019 we are so excited to welcome worship leader and youth pastor Elle Limebear from the UK, who will not only lead our praise and worship, but also speak into the lives of our Youth girls on Saturday.

As the eldest daughter of Martin Smith, (lead singer of the Delirious?), Elle was fortunate to travel the world with her father and witness the global church worshipping God, while managing to stay immersed in a close-knit, ministry within her local community.

Hosted by C3 Youth Pastor Jessen Lee, our high school girls will be ministered to through amazing speakers, creative activities and heaps of fun!

"There I was, overcome with emotion in a sea of people worshiping God with everything inside of them. This wasn’t a new experience for me, but this time it was different than all of the times before. God had just injected me with a new dream. I had heard him say, 'I am going to lead you in something similar to this.' With that revelation came a rush of new ideas, new ambitions, and songs.”

That was at Outcry Festival 2017.

Elle Limebear has lived her life between two worlds. As the daughter of Delirious? front man, Martin Smith, Elle has experienced first-hand the thrill of stadiums filled with people while on tour around the world. As a worship leader and youth pastor in Brighton, UK, she is immersed in a close-knit, daily ministry within her community. She grew up seeing the global church and her local church worshipping God simultaneously.

Elle is writing for those well acquainted with the night. She is making music for the generation to come, and these songs will serve as a reminder that this same Maker of all the things we see is the very one who created us. We belong to no one and nothing else but Him.

In the song “Maker of The Moon” written by Elle and Bright City, she writes that we are face to face with the God who made all of this and put the science behind all things and holds all of it together. There is not only light during the day, but the Maker of the moon sought to bring hope and light to his people even in the darkest of nights.

“My hope is for my friends that don’t know Jesus to still identify with these songs,” said Elle. “That they’re on their party playlists, spreading hope, drawing them into truth, and then seeing it spread out to their friends, colleges, clubs, through their cities and wider.”

Elle sees the future of her music like a concert full of diverse people from the most eclectic of backgrounds drawn in by visuals, melodies, and art that they love. And from there, the effect of good music would become revelations of truth in their lives.

“One of my favorite roles in life is being an older sister. I would love to sit with everyone and chat about everything. For them to feel safe like they’re talking to an older sibling or a long-time friend. I want my music to make them feel valued and included. I want them to feel like they have a seat at the table.”

Elle studied as a photographer at college but after graduation spent the next 2 years leading worship alongside her father at churches and events all around the globe. She said, “Singing and leading worship with my dad is my favorite thing. I’ve watched and learned from him since I was a little girl - my whole life he has let me fly.”

Elle recently got married to her husband Tom and they live in Brighton, UK. She is currently writing and recording new music, eating satsumas, playing Bananagrams, and enjoying every sunny day she gets in England.
