Women discipling women, who disciple women … WHAT IF?

What if we made the time for each other? What if we opened our schedules and our lives, and built refining relationships? What if? Let’s start here …

For one weekend, let’s allow each other in and pursue God together. Great food. Inspiring conversation. Challenging speakers. Live worship. Join thousands across the globe via livestream listening to engaging authors and speakers.

IF: Houghton 2019
at Evangel Church, Houghton
Friday evening – February 8
Saturday – February 9

Starting Friday evening, women of all ages (teens and up) will settle in for a few hours as we join the thousands who are watching the IF: Gathering via livestream. In addition to the dozens of amazing speakers we’ll learn from virtually, you can expect non-virtual, ACTUAL food, warm drinks, and loving company, not to mention live worship.

Saturday we’ll dive in again, opening scriptures and exploring God together.

Who should attend?

Women. No matter what denomination or background, we do our best to create a space for all women to learn from biblical teachings. IF:Gathering does not identify with any specific denomination and encourages women across denominations to gather together. Since childcare is not available, please make arrangements for children to stay at home. Of course, nursing babies are welcome, and there will be a mama/baby room available for nursing and fussing.

Who will be speaking?

No details have been released, but we expect to see women like: Jennie Allen, Christine Caine, Rebekah Lyons, Jo Saxton, Jill Briscoe, and many others. Additional speakers may be released mid-January.
