IF:Gathering Frequently Asked Questions

Can I test my technology?

Yes! There are two testing times for the livestream:

  • Thursday, March 4th, at 9 pm
  • Friday, March 5th, at 1 pm

We highly recommend you test your technology if you are a virtual participant! Log into your account on the IF:Gathering website and read the documents below for more important information!

How does the Breakout Session work?

Every attendee has access to one Breakout Session of her choosing during the event. Navigate to the Breakouts tab to read the topics and view the teachers.

Select the breakout session you want to watch in your IF:2021 account, and it will appear in your Schedule.

You will be able to join your selected breakout session by clicking on the breakout session on the “Schedule” tab of your profile.

Breakouts begin at 8:15am CT, but you can always start your selected session later if you are in another timezone. If you have IF:2021 On Demand, you will be able to watch all breakout sessions after March 22, until the end of the year. 

If you are attending IN PERSON at FAC, we will be viewing ONE session at 915 am Saturday morning. You may by registering with the IF organization also choose ONE breakout session to watch on your own anytime between Saturday at 915 am until Monday, March 9th, at midnight.

How do I access my attendee profile?

Log-in to the IF:Gathering website with the username and password you created when you registered with the IF organization.

(An email you received had Step 2: Register on the IF website. Please note that you do not have to choose any of the extra options.)

How do I connect with other ladies from FAC during the sessions?


Every IF:Local group has a private chat that can be utilized to stay connected during the event.

You will need to turn on your group chat by going to your Group Settings before your event and enabling the chat. You can also turn it off once your event is over.

During the event, there will be an icon in the lower right corner of your screen so you can always click on your chat and view it while watching the event. If you are joining us live, you will be able to choose to view your private chat or the IF:2021 live event chat at any time.

What is the worship playlist for this retreat?

What if I’m hosting a small group of women virtually at my home?

That is great!! Please have each of your participants still register with FAC and also with the IF organization. The cost to join will assist in their access to IF content and a few extra surprises coming their way even as virtual participants!
