Let's do this TOGETHER!
The Purpose & Passion Tour was inspired by a desire to share powerful gifts in an intentional space that will tap further into God’s power and create community. Our goal is to create a powerful experience that will result in a pivot point for event attendees. We will encourage each other to dream bigger, structure obtainable goals, and align with purpose.
The tour headliners, Eboni and Shelonda, are domestic violence survivors. A portion of tour proceeds will benefit a domestic violence shelter in each city.
Eboni Montsho is committed to guiding others to overcome their past, discover their purpose and unleash their personal power. She provides ready-to-use principles that drive action on how to put yourself first and dream big again realizing that ALL things work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
Eboni understands how it feels to be alone, scared, worried, frustrated, depressed and sad. Being a teenage mother of 3, a survivor of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and growing up father-less, she identifies with what it means to struggle, be insecure, or put on a facade. She understands what it means to be the strong friend that everyone looks up to and expects to have it altogether, yet you are crumbling inside. Because she experienced many trials, upsets, stops-and-starts, it ignited a fire inside. At times when she thought life was over, her FAITH became the fuel to the fire that kept her going. Equipped with the word of God and an undying love for His people, Eboni is on a mission to interrupt thoughts of self-doubt, low self-esteem, fear, and unworthiness. Eboni shares her life testimony as a tale of aspiration to help motivate and encourage everyone she encounters by telling them “YOU HAVE THE POWER TO WIN.”
