Can you make an announcement for me at an event?
We are delighted when women choose to celebrate special occasions at our events. However, we value the time of all our attendees. Because of the number of announcements that must be made in order to keep the event flowing smoothly it is extremely rare that we have the opportunity to make birthday, anniversary, or other personal announcements and still stay true to all that God has called us to accomplish over the weekend. Thank you for understanding.
Do you have any programs for bloggers who want to cover Women of Faith events?
Yes, we have a few openings for bloggers at every event. Please fill out our blogging request form here to be considered. If approved, an event pass will be provided for blogger only (no family members or guests). Travel and expenses not included.
I lost something at an event. What do I do?
All found objects are turned in to the venue. Please contact the facility and ask for their Lost and Found department. If you lost a credit/debit card, contact your credit card company or bank immediately and inform them your card has been lost.
Where can I find out more about the speakers/artists?
You’ll find more information about our current speakers and artists in each the event information page for each city.
Where can I find the current schedule of event cities and dates?
Click here to visit our event page for current information.
Is this event available in Spanish?
Yes! Live, simulcast translation is provided via radio broadcast. Those who prefer Spanish may bring their own listening device with headphones or check one out from the limited number available at Guest Services; the frequency will be announced on the JumboTron at the event. No special seating is necessary for Spanish translation.
Do you provide child care?
No, the arena setting and large crowds make that impractical. We do offer a room for nursing mothers.
Is sign language interpretation provided?
Yes! A special section is set aside for those requiring sign language interpretation. Please be sure to request this section when you register.
How does Women of Faith select the event cities?
There are a number of factors that go into deciding where to hold an event. The most obvious need is a venue that will hold enough women, but there are many other things we take into consideration, such as proximity to other events, professional teams’ schedules, etc.
Registration & Prices
How much does it cost to attend a Women of Faith event?
That depends on which event you wish to attend and where you want to sit. Visit womenoffaith.com/events and select your desired event to see pricing options.
Can I register at the box office the day of the event?
Yes, as long as the event is not sold out.
Why is there a Service Fee?
In most, if not all, of our venues, we are charged a fee for each person in attendance. In many cities, this is a non-negotiable cost for us. For many years we were able to absorb that cost and increased processing fees. Going forward we need to add this small fee to our registration package to offset that cost somewhat so we can continue to spread the message of God’s love and grace to as many people as possible.
If I can only come to part of the event, do I have to pay full price?
Yes. We do not offer partial registration, however some women share their registration with another who can attend the part of the event she cannot.
Is there a separate price for children for the Women of Faith event?
No. Although we do provide a nursing mother’s room and there is no charge for infants, attendees are encouraged to leave young children at home or with suitable caregivers. The length of the sessions and the arena setting are not ideal for young children. However, girls in their teens frequently attend and enjoy the events.
I can’t afford to come to a Women of Faith event, do I have any options? Can I volunteer?
We need the services of several hundred volunteers at each event. Volunteers either attend the event free of charge or earn free registrations for another. Learn more about volunteering at a Women of Faith event—including how to sign up—in the Volunteer section.
When will I get my registration packet in the mail?
You may expect it 2-4 weeks prior to your event date.
Why do I have to go to Will Call for my registrations?
Usually this is because there is not enough time between your registration and the event to ensure that your registration will arrive in time.
Speakers & Artist
Where can I find out more about the speakers/artists?
You’ll find more information about our current speakers and artists in each the event information page for each city.
I want show my talent/my friend’s talent at an event. How do I go about that?
We appreciate your desire to share your gift with others. However, our talent is booked well in advance and our events are structured in such a way that we do not have time to add segments and still stay true to all that God has called us to accomplish over the weekend. We pray God will guide you every step of the way as you pursue opportunities to use the gifts He’s given you.
How do I become a Women of Faith speaker, worship leader, or artist?

How are seats assigned?
For events with assigned seating: If you register online, you may choose from the available seats shown on the seating chart.

Are box lunches available? What is in the box lunch?
Please see your city’s event page for more information about box lunches at your event.
Can I bring food/drinks into the arena?
Unfortunately, most (if not all) venues ban outside food and drinks.
What if I have a medical condition that requires a special diet?
Most arenas say (on their Web sites) they will make exceptions to the “no outside food or drink” rule for medical conditions. You will need to contact the arena directly to request an exception. We recommend you get it in writing so you’ll have something to show the security guard at the door when you arrive.
How long is the lunch break?
Please see your city’s event page for the schedule of that event.
What type of vendors are at the arena?
This varies by facility. Please check the Web site for your event’s venue for information.

What if I have another question?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a Volunteer Coordinator will respond to your email.
Several friends and I are volunteering together – will our seats be located together?
Each volunteer will have a seat in the arena.
Where will my seat be located?
We make every effort to provide excellent seats for our volunteers, but sometimes we are restricted by a variety of factors, such as building size, total attendance, production issues, etc. Your volunteer seat will most likely be located close to where you are volunteering.
May I sign up my friends to volunteer?
No. Each person must individually apply to volunteer. This ensures that they have read and understood their volunteer commitment and responsibilities and have agreed to them. Please encourage your friends to apply to be a volunteer! Make it easy by emailing a friend the Web site address or print the Volunteer Registration Form for them. The form can be mailed or faxed to our office.
How old do you have to be to volunteer?
All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.
I can’t be there for the entire scheduled time, but could make it to most of the event; may I still volunteer?
No. You must be available for the entire scheduled volunteer time.
Can I choose where (area of service) I volunteer?
You will be able to request a position, just be aware that some positions fill up quickly. You will receive a confirmation email if you are confirmed on the team of your choice.

What denomination is Women of Faith?
Our mission is to encourage women and teens from all walks of life to grow in an understanding of God’s love and grace, faith and spiritual maturity through a relationship with Jesus Christ. All women are invited to attend, regardless of age, race, religious background, or lack of religious background. We are purposefully broad in welcoming every woman to our events, no matter where she is in her journey of faith. The gospel message is given at each event. We understand that denominational ties are important to many people. However, we’ve found that it’s best to focus on our common beliefs in Jesus and His saving grace rather than our differences.
Click here to read our Statement of Faith
Women of Faith is a Christ-centered organization with a Biblical world-view. We believe the Bible is the only inspired Word of God, breathed into existence by Him and inerrant in its revelation. We believe there in only one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God has revealed Himself through Creation, history and the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. We believe humankind is separated from God through sin/rebellion and can only be reconciled into a right relationship with Him by putting our faith in the perfect/sinless life, substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, we believe we are saved by divine grace alone, that there’s nothing we can do to justify/save ourselves. We also believe that after salvation, the Holy Spirit indwells believers and enables us to grow in our knowledge and understanding of God’s love and therefore to live in a way that honors Him. Finally, we believe the Bible encourages unity among followers of Christ, corporate worship (church), Bible reading, prayer, community and compassionate care for the poor.

What is a Women of Faith Simulcast?
Simulcasts offer Women of Faith an opportunity to expand the Women of Faith event experience that many of you experienced as ticket holders into venues and churches across the nation. There are cities across the world that will not have the opportunity to host a live Women of Faith event due to logistics and travel schedules of our speakers and guests. Simulcasts are an investment in the community at large and not an individual product. It is our hope that you, as a supporter/ attendee of past Women of Faith events would either (1) advocate on our behalf to your church, encouraging it to host the event or (2) find a church in your area that is already hosting and attend their event.
