We know that this ticket price could be prohibitive. We encourage you in the next two weeks before registration opens to talk to your church, women’s ministry leader, mentor, or other people in your community that believe in your leadership to ask their support. This is an opportunity for others to invest in equipping you for leadership which will have a ripple effect, equipping & mobilizing other women in your church and local context.

Also, you should keep in mind:

  1. We are going to offer a handful of scholarships to IF:Local Leaders who are nominated by their IF:Locals. More info on scholarships coming soon!

Question & Answer

What is an IF:Local Leader?

An IF:Local leader has three requirements:

  1. She must have a desire to take initiative for God’s glory and for the good of others
  2. She must be plugged into a local church
  3. She has hopefully hosted an IF:Local, IF:Pray, or IF:Table gatherings in the last 2 years.

Does IF:Gathering handle my hotel reservation & roommate?

Hotel room reservations are a separate expense. We recommend splitting rooms to save money, and we will setup a separate Facebook group to connect attendees to coordinate transportation, accommodations, and anything else!


Are there scholarships available?

Yes, there will be a few scholarships available. More information on this coming soon!


Are tickets refundable? Transferable?

Due to limited space, tickets are not refundable but they are transferable. Please email [email protected] for further assistance with your registration.


What is the speaker line up? 

Like our large gatherings in February, we will not release a speaker line up. Our hope is that you will come for training and equipping in leadership and disciple making for your local contexts.


I’m interested in becoming a sponsor.

We are looking for a limited number of brand-aligned sponsors to partner with us for our IF:Local Leader gathering! If you are interested in joining us, please e-mail [email protected] for more information.


Is there a wait list that I can join?

Yes, we will have a wait list that will open up to transfers. You will be expected to pay the full ticket price of $325. Wait list link will go live as soon as we are sold out.


What if I cannot come? 

  1. We will offer this content for FREE to all IF:Local leaders after the gathering.
  2. This is just the beginning! We hope to provide more equipping opportunities in the future.


If I am not able to come does that mean that I cannot be an IF:Local leader? 

Attending this training is not required to host an IF:Local or to use our tools! This is just an additional equipping opportunity.
