Jenni Allen, author and Bible teacher in Austen Texas, recently held an interdenominational women’s conference that was attended by 1,200 women in Austin, TX and “tens of thousands” of women attending via streaming across 22 countries. Christianity Today reports that the IF: Gathering conference focused on spiritual formation for women, and encouraged women to seek and take hold of their callings. The conference website reads,

“If God is real, then what? If he is who he says he is, and we are who he says we are, then that changes everything, doesn’t it? Everything… from the way we decorate our homes and the TV shows we watch to the way we raise our kids and spend our money.”

Although details of conference were not widely released or hyped before the event itself, featured speakers included Christine Caine (Hillsong Church), Jen Hatmaker (blogger), Ann Voskamp (author), and Shelley Giglio (Passion City Church). Allen remarks, “there is something happening in our generation, and I believe it's a manifesto in a way, a call for us to link arms and to spend our lives beautifully and well for the glory of God.”
