Join us for ONE2018!

Here are a few things you may want to know as you are making your plans to join us October 5-6 in
Ames, Iowa for Jen Wilkin and the ONE Conference.


Our Speaker: Jen Wilkin

In her own words:
"I'm a wife, a mom to 4 great kids, and an advocate for believers to love God with their minds through the faithful study of His Word. I write, speak, and teach the Bible. Our family calls The Village Church home."

Jen Wilkin is an author and Bible teacher from Dallas, Texas. She has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. Her passion is to see others become articulate and committed followers of Christ, with a clear understanding of why they believe what they believe, grounded in the Word of God. She currently serves on the staff of The Village Church Institute. Jen and her husband Jeff have four children and have been married for twenty-five years. You can find her at

Jen will teach 3 main sessions at ONE2018 based on the theme "All Things New" challenging us to consider God's promise that in Christ we are new creations. 

"When we come to saving faith in Christ, we are given new life, reborn into the family of God. But what exactly does this new life entail? God makes us a new creation, gives us a new name, and sets us on a new path. Come consider what it means to leave the past behind, embrace your identity, and walk according to God's will."



While our schedule is not set in stone as of yet, here's a little taste of what is to come in our time together:

  • Friday Night Main Event: 6:30p with Dessert to follow
  • Two main sessions and two workshops Saturday (ending by 3p)
  • Saturday workshops
  • Lunch onsite Saturday

Whether you are coming from out of town or just a few miles away, plan to make ONE2018 a real retreat and enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Here's a start on some hotel ideas in the area. We have room blocks reserved at these hotels and hope to add more soon:

MyPlace Hotel, Ankeny (20 minutes down I-35)
Room rate: Single ($88.99) or Double ($93.99)
Block Name: The ONE Conference
Reserve by September 5.

May we also suggest checking out Airbnb?

If you are from the Ames area, don't miss this opportunity to have some real gal pal time! Maybe kick the family out of your home and invite some friends for a sleepover? We believe there is power in having TIME to really process all you will learn at ONE 2018. 

Interested in bringing a group of gals (8 or more) from your community? Drop us an email at and let us know. We can provide an individualized group rate code ($55/person) for you to share with the gals in your group, allowing them to register on their own through September 15. We would love for the ONE Conference 2018 to be YOUR fall event!
