Do you ever feel bombarded with words? Words that harm. Words that distract. Empty words. At TGCW18, we’ll gather to immerse ourselves in God’s life-giving Word of truth. We’ll hear the living God speak personally to us in the book of Deuteronomy.
We’ll hear his words of appeal, calling us urgently to remember his faithfulness and turn from our unfaithfulness. We’ll hear his words of promise, spoken to rebel-hearted people like you and me. We’ll hear his words of instruction, pointing us to the gospel of grace that shapes every aspect of our lives. We’ll hear his words of renewal, offering life through redemption in his Son. We’ll aim to listen well to these God-breathed words and live in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We invite you to join us for a conference that’s for women but not all about women. It’s about exalting the Lord Jesus and growing together in his Word.
A few highlights of TGCW18:
- We’re gathering June 14 to 16 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis. Please see the “FAQ” section on our conference website for information regarding nearby attractions and restaurants you and your friends can enjoy together.
- We’ve invited 56 speakers to offer a total of 52 workshops (including a three-workshop Spanish track) and 14 “Listening In” breakout sessions (a more informal setting). These gatherings will address a host of topics, from loving whole families of children in need to evangelism in the workplace to the ministry of women in the early church to the implications of global migration, and on and on. Please consider inviting your non-Christian or younger-in-the-faith friends, as this will be a great context for dialogue about what it means to know and follow the Lord Jesus.
- We’re partnering with the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) to host a preconference, “Loving the Most Vulnerable,” where we’ll consider how the gospel shapes our response to sojourners, the fatherless, and widows.
- Early registration rates run through November 2—individual: $159; group (5–9 people): $145; international/student: $99.
Sisters, mothers, daughters, friends, church groups, older, younger—whatever your context, join us! Our team is already praying for those of you who will come and the many local churches you represent.
We can hardly wait to see you in June!
