The Duggars are headed to Australia to speak at IBLP Family Conference

Duggars Australia

Can you say “Fundies Down Undies?” Wait, that didn’t come out right… Perhaps I should eschew the catchy slogan and just announce: The Duggars are headed to Australia! Like, A LOT of them!

Michelle Duggar, Jim Bob Duggar, and 14 of their children will be flying to Victoria, Australia where they will be featured speakers at Kilsyth South Baptist Church before kicking off the 2018 IBLP Australia Annual Family Conference with another speaking engagement. It is not clear exactly which 14 children will be in attendance — or, more importantly, which five children will not be in attendance. (Although it would be easy to start the latter list.)

In case you didn’t know, The IBLP is The Institute in Basic Life Principles (formerly IBYC, or The Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts), a non-denominational church established by Bill Gothard.

Here are the deets on the Duggar clan’s first appearance on January 13th:

Come and meet some of the Duggar Family (16 of them) as they join us Down Under. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, along with 14 of their children, will be sharing some of their insights into family life and homeschooling. The time of sharing will be followed by an afternoon tea for all to enjoy, while spending time fellowshipping with the Duggars and other families.

And here are the details on the Duggars’ conference appearance, including some pricing for those of you interested in attending:

The Duggar Family will be taking their trip to Australia a little more than a year after Jinger and Jeremy Vuolo ventured Down Under for their honeymoon in November of 2016. In addition, fellow reality stars (and IBLP / Gothard followers) Gil and Kelly Bates (plus daughter Carlin) from Growing Up Bates visited Australia for the 2017 conference in January of this year.

It’s unclear at this time if TLC cameras will be accompanying the Duggar family to Australia; I imagine that will depend on whether or not the Counting On daughters will be there — which I think is unlikely. (I can imagine Jessa attending, but Jinger was just there. And Jill seems tied to her husband Derick’s ministry residency.)
