What is Women's Workshop?

Women’s Workshop is a single-day event that exists to foster biblical literacy and encourage a deep love of the Bible among women of The Austin Stone. This year, Jeff Vanderstelt will lead us in the study of gospel fluency and look at how we can apply biblical truths to the everyday moments of our lives.

If the gospel is meant to impact us, not just theologically but also practically, we have to become fluent in it. We need to understand how our thoughts, emotions, and actions are impacted by unbelief so we can let the gospel take root in our lives and change us. The gospel is not only the foundation of our lives, but the scaffolding that holds it together.

What we’ll see as we study the Scriptures and learn to apply them to our hearts and minds is that the gospel is not something we grow from, but rather grow deeper into. And we’ll come to understand that the breadth and depth of our emotions are tools God has given us to see our specific needs for the gospel and its perfect provision for us. We hope you’ll join us on Saturday, September 10!

Frequently Asked Questions

What does my in-person ticket include?

The workshop is a full-day training that includes four teaching sessions with Jeff Vanderstelt, Q&A, and time to workshop the content individually and in small groups. You’ll also get lunch, snacks, a few fun surprises, and access to the filmed sessions after the workshop. Childcare is not provided.

What can I expect from the sessions?

Session 1 will focus on what the gospel is and what the practice of becoming fluent in it looks like. Session 2 will unpack a tool called “root to fruit” which helps us trace our actions to their underlying beliefs so that the gospel can change us. Session 3 will give us a biblical understanding of the role of emotions in the work of being gospel fluent. Session 4 will show us how the gift of our emotions (even the ones we think of as negative) give us an opportunity to be known by, rely on, and be changed by Jesus. Each session will include time to workshop individually or in a small group for application. We’ll also begin and end our day with worship, as well as a final panel of female leaders from The Austin Stone to help us narrow in on application and next steps.

What if I can’t make the Workshop on September 10?

No problem! We are offering a Post-Workshop Content Pass that will allow you to watch the main sessions on your own at a later date if you can’t attend on September 10! The workshop will not be live-streamed.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

We’re more than happy to provide partial scholarships for anyone in need of financial assistance. Please request a scholarship here prior to registering.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

Refunds are available for in-person tickets through August 31. After that date, no refunds will be issued (and you forfeit your workshop swag), but you’ll still receive access to the filmed main sessions as if you’d purchased a Post-Workshop Content Pass. Refunds are not available for the Post-Workshop Content Pass at any time. Request a refund here.

Can I change from an in-person ticket to a Post-Workshop Content Pass or vice versa?

You can change ticket types, but be mindful of refund dates. If you need to change from an in-person ticket to a Post-Workshop Content Pass you can only do that through August 31. After that, you’ll still receive the content digitally, but will not receive a partial refund or swag. If you want to upgrade a Post-Workshop Content Pass to an in-person ticket, you can do that (pending availability) through September 8, but keep in mind the ticket price increases on September 1. Change your ticket type here.

Why is Women’s Workshop being taught by a man?

One of our ministry priorities is creating spaces for women that are led and taught by women. You’ll see it carried out through all of our other ministry opportunities this year—Bible studies, congregational gatherings, and Women’s Retreat. Another one of our values is supporting the discipleship of women by providing the best resources we can. So, when it became clear that this year’s workshop would be an ideal setting to get trained in gospel fluency, we knew that we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to let Jeff Vanderstelt lead our time. His expertise and care are unmatched, and he is excited to pour into the women of The Austin Stone! Want to get to know Jeff a little before the workshop?
