Imagine an international conference where thousands of women from all over the world gather to experience dynamic worship and to hear from nationally-known speakers. You might picture a sports arena, a conference center, or some other large venue as the site that accommodates such a crowd. Now imagine that conference in the intimacy and comfort of someone's home.
On February 5-6, 2016, small groups of women met in hundreds of IF:Gatherings across the world. In those gatherings, they tuned in via live simulcast video to hear speakers such as Jen Hatmaker and Lauren Chandler challenge and encourage them to live out the calling God has placed on their lives. Pathway hosted 14 IF:Gatherings—140 women—who met in homes across our area.
The IF:Gathering conference is about connecting women into smaller settings where they can worship, listen, process, and ask questions to help them grow in their relationships with God.
"...I loved (that) weekend. The IF:Gathering, yes, but even more, the intentional prayer and uplifting conversation."
"I can't tell you just how much I needed this refreshing weekend—from transparent conversations to laughter and meeting new ladies, much more than just acquaintances."
The IF:Gathering is one way we're equipping the body at PCC. We intentionally foster and design environments that will help our people connect to each other and grow in their faith. As we move further into Beyond, we believe our reach will continue to increase, allowing us to lead even more into a full life found only in Jesus Christ.
