The Gospel Coalition’s 2016 Women’s Conference was held in Indianapolis, Indiana, from June 16 to 18, 2016. More than 7,000 women from all 50 states and 40 countries gathered together to study 1 Peter.

The conference, “Resurrection Life in a World of Suffering,” sought to show who we are in Christ and how we are to live as redeemed sojourners.

Along with the seven main plenary sessions, we had more than 40 workshops and 30 focus gatherings led by speakers addressing topics including discipleship, sexual identity, abortion, mentoring, sexual abuse, raising children, faith and work, and more.
