Volunteer Details

Join Our Volunteer Team

 

The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 Women’s Conference is taking place on June 14–16, 2018 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana. This year’s conference theme is Listen and Live: Promised Grace for Rebel Hearts. Over fifty speakers will walk us through the text of Deuteronomy. Additionally, more than sixty-five workshops and breakout sessions will be available on a wide variety of other subjects.

Our small army of volunteers are critical in making the conference a time of growth, encouragement, and blessing for the attendees. We rely on a committed group of people who are willing to serve our attendees and speakers joyfully and sacrificially. Would you consider helping us serve women from around the world as they gather for fellowship, teaching, and refreshment?
