A one-day digital event for women
We’ve all been sitting in a lot of tensions. We miss being busy, but we’re also afraid of returning to the way things were. We are grateful for time with people we love, but saddened by the struggles in our own lives, and those we love. We want to dream about the future, but it feels completely unknown.
So, what is it? Mission or rest? Joy or disappointment? Dream big or wait on God?
What if I told you it’s both—all of it? My favorite seminary professor always said, “Embrace the tension.” And never have words resonated more.
So, for IF:Lead 2020, we are embracing the tension with this sisterhood of women God has given us called IF:Gathering. We do not want you to miss it! And yes, this is for you. Whether you lead toddlers or are a CEO of a company or lead a small Bible study in your dorm room. You lead! Here are some of the dreams we have for you:
You will stop waiting to lead yourself and the people who need you.
You feel equipped to study and teach your Bible, as well as bring people together to talk about Jesus.
You will build the community you have been craving around the mission God has for you.
You will innovate with your team and friends about how to transform your church, neighborhood, family, or workplace.
You will have space to celebrate and dream with women all over the world together about how God could use us in our generation.
Tune in now!
How do you lead through all of the tensions and every unknown?

Do you ever look at the satisfaction and success in other people’s lives, and wonder where yours is? Join author, podcast host, and speaker, Jamie Ivey, as she helps you discover and own your gifts. You will be challenged to give up the idea that you must have someone else’s skills, talents, family, or resources to succeed, and instead use your influence to start leaving your mark on the world.
In a noisy world, we are craving deep community. How can we be connected to thousands of friends on social media, and around people all day, yet so desperately lonely sometimes?

A large portion of our world has woken up recently with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd. What does it look like to become an ally in racial reconciliation? There is permission to try, fail, and learn, but sometimes our tendency to act before we understand can perpetuate the problem. How are our efforts hurting others? How do we do this work in a way that’s actually helpful? When do we speak up, and when do we need to shut up? Join Latasha Morrison, founder of Be the Bridge, as she offers practical next steps in this work of racial reconciliation.
Do you understand your Bible and feel equipped to teach it? Joel Muddamalle, Director of Theology and Research for Proverbs 31 Ministries, will unpack how to both read your Bible and effectively teach it. We want you to walk away with a deep appreciation for the beauty of scripture, as well as practical tools to help you teach those you’re discipling.
As leaders, we can get in the rut of believing that our service to God and His kingdom is our highest calling, so we miss what He truly treasures for us—to live and serve from the overflow of the deep, soul-rest He offers. Sometimes our hustle holds us back from discovering our true identity in the quiet center of God’s love. An identity that holds the key to unlocking the life and the leadership God created us for! Join Christy Nockels as she talks about her new book, The Life You Long For, and reminds you what it looks like to rest in who God is, as you continue to run your race.
