Our Speakers

Holly H. Myers HeadshotHolly Myers is a passionate, energetic, and relatable woman that strives to minister specifically to girls and women. She is a part of Revolution Church in Charlotte, NC, where her husband, Richard, is the head pastor. Holly and Richard are also the parents to two wonderful daughters! She is the President and Founder of Unbound Ministries through Revolution Church. Her burden to begin Unbound Ministries grew out of her own life experiences and desire to help women of all ages overcome insecurities and seek the truth about beauty, freedom and who they are in Christ.

Holly was led down a long path of pain and destruction through her struggles for many years with self-image, food addiction, and understanding who she was in Christ. When Holly surrendered to God’s grace, her past ultimately drew her closer to her Creator and allowed her to experience freedom. Because Christ set Holly free from the bondage she was in, she recognized a calling to speak to other girls and women that may share her same story.

Holly is a speaker with Unbound Ministries and speaks at various conferences and events to share her story with others, along with encouraging messages about freedom, identity in Christ, and embracing God-size dreams. Holly is passionate about seeing freedom in the lives of each and every girl and woman.

Ashley Steves HeadshotAshley Steves is a mama-bear to six children and married to her highschool sweetheart, Joshua, in Baltimore, Maryland. She owns her own business, helps her husband run his coffee roasting business, and helps lead the womens ministry at her church. Beyond that, when she is not classically homeschooling her tribe, she can be found behind a camera seeking to capture beauty or with her nose stuck in a book hunting for goodness and truth. Her love for Jesus, the truth of his Word, and sweet fellowship with other believers fuels her ferociously, passionate personality. You can follow her and her tribe on Instagram.

Colleen Smith HeadshotColleen Smith is a visionary, dream chaser and child of God. She is currently the co-founder and director of the GEM (Gospel, Education, Mentoring) Program in East Baltimore. Within in this role, she mentors inner city children and works along side families to help them be the best they can be. GEM provides students the opportunity to hear about Jesus and His unconditional love for them (Gospel), to develop a plan to succeed in school and overcome the odds set against them to graduate high school and continue on to college or the workforce (Education) and allows students the opportunity to have their own personal cheerleaders and someone to help their dreams be put into motion through her mentoring program (Mentoring).

Above all, Colleen is a reflection of a God who makes “beauty from ashes”. Her past helps her to relate to the unloved and her present helps them to see that they also do not have to be defined by their current situations. Some of her sometimes funny and loving adventures with these children can be found on her blog.

Other than that, you can find Colleen on any given day reaching out to prostitutes through her “Pretty in Pink” ministry, providing homeless outreach, or immersing herself into her community through family dinners, Moms Night Outs and popsicle nights. Colleen is currently working on her first book, teaching others about the importance of intentional living and sharing her story of freedom, grace, redemption and victory with others through public speaking. Colleen is known to be a true reflection of the love of Christ and an encouragement to those who know her.
