Description: At IF:Gathering 2017, we’ll look at one of the most influential generations that have ever lived — the early church. The way God moved through them was simple and pure. We believe they are the model we need right now. Our dream is that we would experience the power of God as He does big things through simple acts of faith. That we live unified, surrendered to God, not just in our minds and in our theology, but also in our daily lives. Our hope is that we would participate with the Spirit of God and see Him go forth in our generation in a most powerful way. We are excited to be hosting our third IF:Gathering! Our vision is to bless each woman with a thoughtful time. We have the conference simulcasted in several areas of our church so that wherever you are you are not missing a single moment. We will provide snacks, a brunch, 2 meals, and optional childcare (Saturday only). We have a nursing mother's room available. We expect 150-200 women from the and welcome any individual, small group or other church who wants to join us!

The Grammy Award-winning Rebirth Brass Band is the undisputed leader of the pack, and they show no signs of slowing down. Formed in 1983 by the Frazier brothers, the band has evolved from playing the streets of the French Quarter to playing festivals and stages all over the world and on HBO’s Treme.

While committed to upholding the tradition of brass bands, they have also extended themselves into the realms of funk and hip-hop to create their signature sound. “Rebirth can be precise whenever it wants to,” says The New York Times, “but it’s more like a party than a machine. It’s a working model of the New Orleans musical ethos: as long as everybody knows what they’re doing, anyone can cut loose.”

Bring your dancing shoes. The orchestra pit will be turned into a dance floor!

Description: For close to 50 years, Tower of Power has been creating their own kind of soul music. Since 1968, Tower of Power has delivered their unique brand of music to their fans, appearing before sold-out crowds as they tour the world each year. Tower's sound can be hard to categorize, but the band's leader and founding member, Emilio Castillo, has labeled their sound as "Urban Soul Music." Tower's rhythm section lays down a groove like no other band. The band's horn driven sound is unique, and the way they approach everything, from writing and arranging to mixing and performing, is totally their own. Combine all of that with an outstanding lead vocalist and you have one of the most dynamic groups of musicians to ever hit the stage. http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/tower-of-power.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

During the Civil War, hundreds of women cut their hair and donned men’s clothing to report for duty to Union and Confederate Army recruiters. Others served as scouts and spies or rode with their husbands and brothers in service. The presentation will explore how and why a fascinating group of women defied cultural norms to become soldiers, especially during a time when there was great emphasis on women’s and men’s separate roles in society. Aaron Barnhart, a member of the Kansas Humanities Council Speakers Bureau, presents programs around the state on history, food and culture. “Women Soldiers of the Civil War” is part of the Kansas Humanities Council’s Kansas Stories Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations and discussions that examine our shared human experience—our innovations, culture, heritage, and conflicts.
