Frequently Asked Questions
What is this conference?
The Restore Women’s Conference is a weekend conference designed for us to stop feeling so alone and overburdened and instead walk in the beauty and freedom of the relationships around us. We’ve designed the conference to intentional create time and space for community. We eat our meals together. We have a “mock-tail” hour with music and vendors, holy-yoga and crafts. We also have taken the financial burden away. The conference is free. Why? We want to remove any excuse for you to be alone any longer. The only thing that we ask, is that you plan on attending the entire two days so you can fully experience the community we are trying to create.
Is this conference really free?
Yes, it is. We believe that in money should not be what keeps women from building community so we have taken a step of faith and are every Restore event going forward will be FREE. The reality is that conferences cost money, from renting a space, providing food, and paying speakers and worship leaders for their time. The cost to hold an event similar to last year’s conference is $300 per person. Of course, we could cut costs by providing less food or condensing our schedule, but the heartbeat of this conference is shared conversation and encouragement around the table as we worship, learn, and eat together. We believe this is something that sets Restore apart from other women’s events and ministries. If you believe in the ministry (especially those of you who attended last year), we are asking for your financial support —whether a monthly or one-time donation.
Do I have to register or can i just show up?
We need you to register. Our numbers and food reservations will be made based upon the number of registrations that come in.
Can I bring my women’s group and church?
Absolutely, we encourage it. If you believe in community, if you believe in seeing God restore women and set them free to walk in the beauty of His story we want you there. Please consider being a ministry partner with us and helping to spread the word about Restore.
