Every Trip Needs a List

How soon do I need to register?

Sheer Conference is one of our most popular events so we recommend registering as soon as possible to reserve a spot! Registration is open now – EARLY BIRD PRICING through May 12th!

Is seating assigned?

Seating is not assigned so arrive early to get a great spot. The building doors will open 45 minutes before all sessions.

Is childcare offered?

This is an adult only event (ages 16 & up). Childcare is not offered. We encourage this weekend to be as distraction free as possible for our Moms. If you are unable to attend because you need childcare, please email info@sheergathering.com. We have set aside options for you.

What should I bring?

We encourage you to bring a Bible and a friend! If you get cold easily, you might want to bring a sweater or light jacket. We’ll also have our Sheer Marketplace open and accepting cash or card. Lot’s of great merchandise and gifts to share!

Can I pay for just the sessions I am able to attend?

All Conference tickets are priced to give you access to the entire conference, rather than paying per session and are not adjustable. Registration fees are non-refundable.

Can I sponsor someone to attend Sheer?

Absolutely! Every year your generosity helps make it possible for other women to be a part of Sheer Conference. You can Sponsor a Sister by selecting that option in the drop down when you start your registration. Click “add someone else” and select “Sponsor a Sister” for that registration type in the drop down menu. Or you can leave it as yourself, and we will assign it to an individual we know would be very grateful for it! Thank you!

What is the attire for the conference?

The attire ranges between dressy and casual; if you chill easily you may want to bring a light jacket.

Does my registration cover everything including meals and snacks?

Yes! Your registration covers yummy snacks throughout the event plus lunch on Saturday. Additionally, the Sheer Pop Up will be open with resources and apparel available for purchase.

Do I have to register now, or can I do it at the door?

We highly recommend registering as soon as possible to receive the early bird discount. We anticipate selling out before the conference, so take advantage of our online registration here!

Do I need my registration wristband both days?

YES! A wristband will be provided to you during Registration. This wristband is your admission to the auditorium for all sessions and should be worn at all times. If you forget or lose it, just visit the Welcome Center and we can help you.
