No Turning Back

I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward – to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. -Philippians 3:14

Kari Jobe

Kari Jobe

  

For more than 15 years, well-respected worship leader Kari Jobe has been using her gifts to lead people into the presence of God. When she began leading worship at age 13, she never imagined she would be nominated for a GRAMMY®, win a Dove Award or be praised by the New York Times. She only knew she had a heart for broken people and a deep desire to lead them to the cross.

Jobe’s third album, Majestic (Capitol CMG), reveals her lifelong passion for the Church. “Worship, for me, has always been such a rescue place in my life,” she says. “When you get down to the very bare bones of worship, it is about us being thankful for the cross and magnifying the name of Jesus above all names. Anything past that is just feel-good music.”

Recorded at the historic Majestic Theatre in Jobe’s hometown of Dallas, Texas, the album is a departure from her first two major label studio releases. Majestic is entirely live and features all-new material (with the exception of Jobe’s cover of “Holy Spirit”), every song a piece of her heart. Jobe began writing for this record two years ago while simultaneously maintaining her position as an associate worship pastor at Dallas’ Gateway Church and a tour schedule that included stints on the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Chris Tomlin’s “Burning Lights” tour, Hillsong Conferences in Sydney and London, the Passion Conference and her own headlining tours. The album boasts co-writes from some of the most admired songwriters around the globe, including Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Brian Johnson, Jason Ingram, Paul Baloche, Reuben Morgan, Marty Sampson, Mia Fieldes, Jenn Johnson and Christa Black Gifford, in addition to several co-writes with her band. 

Majestic follows Jobe’s Dove Award-winning, self-titled debut and her sophomore album Where I Find You. She has also released The Acoustic Sessions and Where I Find You Christmas Edition digitally in 2012. In 2013, Jobe was a part of special projects such as the award-winning Passion: Let the Future Begin (“Revelation Song”) and My Hope: Songs Inspired by the Message and Mission of Billy Graham. (“The Cross is My Confession”).

Her greatest accolade always has been and always will be the opportunity to reflect Christ. “I don’t see myself any differently than when I was 13, just a worship leader,” she admits. “It’s just sometimes I open my eyes and there’s a few more people worshipping God with me.”

Frequently Asked Questions

General

Gateway Student Conference is designed for junior high and senior high school students (sixth–twelfth graders for the 2014–2015 school year) as well as youth leaders and youth pastors.

The Youth Leader Track is available to guest youth leaders and pastors. It’s the highlight of GSC and an opportunity to connect with one another and receive valuable behind-the-scenes time with our Gateway Students Pastors, staff, Gateway Church leaders, and special guest pastors. When it comes time to leave the conference, we want guest youth leaders and pastors to feel refreshed, encouraged, and empowered to lead their students like never before! There is no additional cost for participation in the youth leader track.

While we would LOVE for you to bring the students from your youth group, it’s not required to participate in the Youth Leader Track.

GSC will be held at the Gateway Church Southlake Campus (700 Blessed Way, Southlake, TX 76092).

There will be no childcare available. Please make outside arrangements (for children younger than sixth grade) if you plan to attend GSC.

Check-in begins on Wednesday, July 22, at 3:00 pm. Even though the first session of the conference doesn’t start until 7:00 pm, we start check-in early to accommodate those travelling from out of town and those interested in avoiding lines. The conference concludes on Friday, July 24, by 10:30 pm.

Casual, modest attire is recommended. The Auditorium is enclosed and air-conditioned. Because the temperatures may vary, we encourage wearing jeans and layered clothing. We suggest bringing a light jacket or hoodie.

You should bring your Bible and something to take notes with.
