BECCA KETTERLING | Conference HOST
Becca Ketterling is passionate about leading and encouraging women to rise up and take their place as the women God has called them to be. Her vision is for women to realize their incredible value, potential and purpose and live it out beautifully for Christ. Proverbs 3:5-6 defines her ministry as she puts her trust in the Lord and allows Him to use her, despite her own fears, to lead the women of River Valley Church.
Together with her husband, Pastor Rob Ketterling, they founded River Valley Church in 1995 where he is the Lead Pastor. River Valley has eight campuses in Minnesota, one in Valencia, Spain and one in Swaziland, Africa. They live in Lakeville, Minnesota and have two sons, Connor & Logan, who are active in ministry and music.
Bianca is a wife, stepmom, writer and a Bible teacher. Her debut book, Play With Fire, is a reminder that God isn’t waiting until you have more resources or a spouse or a job so he can use you. He’s ready to use you to build His kingdom right now. Bianca is passionate about God and is committed to speaking truth when it hurts, loving when it’s hard, and living life out loud. She loves to curl up in her robe with her chubby dachshund Ricci and read a good book. She and her husband Matt are passionate about building the Church in the United States and around the world.
