Share the good word:
gather your people.
share a meal.
explore your faith.
We dream of women across Dallas gathering their neighbors, coworkers, those that know Jesus, and those who are in the process of exploring their faith. Together, we’ll share a meal and explore what it means to follow Jesus in a safe, non-intimidating context where women can bring their questions and wrestle it out. We’ll share stories, ask questions, voice doubt, and hear from women with undeniable faith. Then we’ll point to diverse, local churches in their area as resources to begin to explore what it means to follow Jesus. The vision is for the unity of women and churches across the city, denominations, ages, and cultures under the name of Jesus.Photo Credit: DCVB
IF:Citywide Check-in Begins
Dinner, Food Trucks, Lawn Games, and Live Music
Registration for IF:Citywide is open. We do not charge a set ticket price, but ask that you pay what you can. The minimum suggested donation amount is $25 for you and each person you bring. That's why we ask those of you who are able to give as much as you can during the registration process so that people who genuinely can't afford it can come. For those of you who can afford to give more, would you please consider donating to help us gather women across Dallas? We would sleep better! God keeps teaching us to take steps of faith. We feel like this is the next one, and we trust that He will provide.
If you are bringing a friend, we believe time in the car is a great opportunity for conversations to happen. Come together and use the time to and from the event to chat and get to know more about each other.

This is likely the best option if you live or work downtown or in Uptown, or if you’re visiting and staying in one of the urban hotels. Even if you’re driving in from the suburbs, why not park at a downtown lot and sightsee on your walk to the park? There are multiple entry points to Klyde Warren Park; the most obvious are off North St. Paul, North Olive, and North Pearl streets, and where North Harwood Street formerly crossed.
On-site bike racks will be available, which will no doubt please area cyclists. According to Google maps, riders can get to the park in less than 10 minutes from numerous surrounding areas: 7 minutes from the Main Street district, 9 minutes from the West End Historic District, 6 minutes from Victory Park, and 8 minutes from Deep Ellum.
The M-Line offers vintage trolleys that run from downtown to Uptown every day for free. (Bonus: They’re heated and air-conditioned.) The trolley route connects three major areas: Cityplace West Village, the McKinney Avenue corridor, and the Arts District. The streetcars have a unique, vintage flair, including a name for each car. One of the cars, “Rosie,” celebrated her 100th birthday in 2009. The trolleys run Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.; on Fridays from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Route maps are available at www.mata.org.
Too close to drive but too far to walk? You might try these electric, futuristic vehicles that operate on tips alone. E-Frog mainly serves Uptown, downtown, the Arts District, Design District, Knox-Henderson, and Deep Ellum. The cars, which seat either three or five passengers, typically run Tuesday through Saturday from 6 p.m. until midnight. Just call or text E-Frog at 469-432-4055 and they’ll come pick you up.
Visitors from throughout Dallas and 12 North Texas cities can get to the park via Dallas Area Rapid Transit’s rail lines and buses. A DART day pass will let you ride as many times as you want for $4; a single ride pass can be had for $1.75. If you’re new to using DART, there’s a trip-planning feature on its website that will come in handy. DART runs seven days a week from about 4 a.m.- 1 a.m. Route maps are available at www.dart.org
what if it is raining on the day of the event?
If it’s raining on April 28th, we will communicate via email the location, directions and parking information of an alternate location for the event to take place inside. Regardless of the weather, we will host IF:Citywide on the 28th - whether as intended at Klyde Warren, or at a different location. We are committed to hosting IF:Citywide on the 28th - come rain or shine.

There is no group ticket pricing. Each ticket you register for will reserve a space for you and a space for a friend who wants to explore their faith in Jesus Christ. If you want to bring more than one person exploring their faith - that’s great. You can bring up to 2. Encourage your friends to do the same.

what if your city came together for a meal and a conversation about jesus?
We dream of you gathering your neighbors, coworkers, those that know God, and those that don't know about God but want to hear more. Together, we'll share a meal and explore what it means to follow Jesus in a safe, non-intimidating context where people can bring their questions and wrestle it out.
