If you’ve never been to a Collide conference before, you are in for an amazing experience full of unique elements and fun surprises. Our conferences are distinct from any other event you’ve been to, so we’ve compiled a few of the most commonly asked questions to help unpack what you can expect when it comes to your ticket, the conference experience, and how to prepare for an exciting night of colliding with Jesus.
Q: Am I going to feel welcome?
A: Collide is an intergenerational gathering that draws hundreds of women with all different backgrounds, stories, beliefs, socioeconomic status’, ethnicities and experiences. Women who don’t go to church gather with women from the most liberal to the most conservative of churches and everything in between and together we run into God. We have women who are 17 and women who are 87 sitting on the same pews and learning from each other. We have meth addicts walking in the doors to collide with Jesus right along with professors, doctors, lawyers and pastors. We have people getting help in our Wholeness and Counseling program right along women discovering their gifts and using them to help others on our Ministry Team. We have people who have known God their whole lives seeing Him in new ways right alongside people who are meeting Him for the very first time. They are blown away together. Collide is for everyone, no matter who you are or where you have been and that is, perhaps, why God is showing Himself so powerfully at our conferences!
Q: What if I am unable to purchase a ticket?
A: We don’t want finances to be an obstacle in the way of you coming to Collide! We often offer scholarships. Please email us at email@example.com to see what we have available for specific events.
Q: What can I expect the conference to look like?
A: Every Collide event is unique and different from any other. We shape and craft an evening around a passage of scripture in the New Testament where Jesus collides with someone. Our events often include stories, teachers, speakers, dessert, art, music and worship, creative exercises, reflection and prayer. Each event is a unique experience that meets women right where they’re at.
Q: What can I expect to be on the menu?
A: We kick off the evening with tray-passed “mocktails” to welcome you in. When it comes to dessert time, we do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions. Typically we try to offer gluten free and dairy free options, although each event is different so unfortunately we’re not always able to cater to everyone’s restrictions at each event.
Q: Can I come late or leave early?
A: Yes, you are able to come and go as you please as we want to make Collide accessible to you. However, we are not able to sell half price tickets. Our events are crafted as a conversation from beginning to end so keep that in mind as you plan for the evening. We truly believe you will get the most out of your Collide experience by engaging with each part of the evening.
Q: How can I help?
A: Check out our “Serve” page!
Q: Does Collide have a refund policy for purchased tickets?
A: Unfortunately, Collide is not able to refund ticket purchases for any event. If you find you cannot make the event you purchased a ticket for you have two options:
- Consider donating your ticket to scholarship another woman who may not be able to attend due to financial constraints.
- Receive a credit for the next Collide conference. (Due to catering commitments we cannot transfer tickets within 7 days or less from the event. All sales within 7 days of the event are final. Tickets may only be transferred once. If an event is canceled due to inclement weather, tickets will be transferred to next scheduled event.)
If you have any questions we didn’t cover here, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you ASAP! We can’t wait to see you at our next conference.
