Priority Women's Conference


Event Details

Welcome to IBSA’s largest women’s event of the year! Our theme this year is, Embrace the Gap. Anytime God calls us to step into an area of influence, upon assessment we will learn that there is always a gap between what’s needed to do the job/task verses our current skills/resources/education/ etc. As women, we often want to have everything we think is needed to do the job in our tool kit before we commit to serve/lead. Embrace the gap by saying yes to leading in the present with an expectancy for God to bring the needed resources and a willingness/transparency on your part to learn and grow. Seating is limited!

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 3000 S Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, IL 62703. Call (217) 529-7777 and ask for the IBSA block to receive the rate of $104 plus tax.

Child care will be provided at Priority.
