This February 3-4, 2017 we will come together in Austin, Texas and around the world in a spirit of humility and unity to pray that God would move in our generation in power, like He did in the early church. As an IF:Local Host, our hope is that you would gather women in your local places and watch the livestream of the event together, or purchase the digital download and host an event anytime next spring. Each IF:Local is unique. There are private gatherings held in homes for just a few friends, women's retreats held at churches, specific populations of women invited to community centers, and cross-denominational groups that come together in convention centers and even movie theaters. Some events are a day and a half, and some are several nights spread out over weeks and months. Regardless of what you are dreaming, there are two things that you should know:
1. We want to challenge you to step outside of your comfort zone.
Maybe signing up to host for the very first time is challenging enough, and we're excited you're here. Maybe you need to secure that space that's a little larger than you originally imagined. For those of you who've hosted before, maybe you're supposed to engage and invite new community of women in your everyday places. Will you pray and take a step of faith by challenging yourself this year?
2. We have built a registration system to meet your needs.
Our desire is to make this event accessible to everyone who wants to participate. In order to do that, we do not charge a set ticket price, and we ask you and all of your attendees to register and give what you can to the vision of IF:Gathering. This registration system will allow you to do that along with: manage your attendee list, edit all of your gathering details, collect a fee per person to cover your event costs, and more. Get started now!
