In-Person Conference Tickets:
(includes virtual conference access)
Join us in-person at our awesome conference venue, which is surrounded by over 30 shops and restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, a park, a pool, and courtyards with palm trees!
To take advantage of the warm Arizona weather and the beautiful outdoor space, we’ve reworked the conference schedule to maximize time for attendees to socialize and make connections outdoors. All of the conference sessions will be on the main stage and will end around 4-5pm to give attendees more time to connect with others outside by the palm trees, fountains, park, courtyards, pool, and golf course.
Virtual Conference Tickets:
We know that not everyone can travel to join us in person, so this year, we’re offering a virtual registration option for anyone who wants to watch the conference online. Virtual ticket-holders will be added to a closed Facebook group where they will be able to watch the conference live. The recordings will be available there for a month after the conference ends. We’d love to have you with us virtually if you can’t make it in person!
The livestream runs from Thursday evening through Saturday; the Pastors in Process and Parents in Process pre-conference programs are not included.
We take public health seriously, and as a result, we ask that all Reconcile and Reform attendees do their part to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the conference. To that end, we will be requiring the following:
- Attendees must provide proof either of vaccination against COVID-19 or of a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the conference; and
- Attendees must wear masks while indoors for conference sessions.
Fortunately, there is ample and beautiful outdoor space at the conference hotel, and the weather in Phoenix will be warm at the end of October. So there will still be many opportunities for socializing and connecting with others while outdoors.
Refunds for conference tickets are typically not available, but we will make an exception in the case of a positive COVID-19 test that prevents someone from attending the conference. (We may request to see documentation of a positive test prior to issuing a refund.) We will also continue to monitor public health guidelines throughout the fall and may adjust our requirements accordingly.
Refresh and Relax
Crowne Plaza Hotel & Resort
We are pleased to be hosting the conference at the beautiful Crowne Plaza Phoenix-Chandler Golf Resort in Arizona!
You can reserve a discounted room at the hotel for $143/night through this link. When you book online, it will show a $15/day resort fee, but the hotel is waiving that fee for all conference attendees, so you will not be charged for it. You will not have to make any deposit in order to make a hotel reservation, and cancellation fees do not apply outside of the 48-hour window prior to your reservation dates.
Is This For Me?
Are you a Christian who supports the LGBTQ community but who wishes that your church were as supportive as you are? Do you feel ill-equipped to have difficult conversations with Christian family and friends about their views on this topic? Is it time to talk to your pastor and church leaders about their views and their interpretation of Scripture when it comes to same-sex relationships and transgender people?
Join us for The Reformation Project’s Reconcile and Reform Conference to help you become a more confident and effective advocate for LGBTQ inclusion in your church. Speaking up about LGBTQ inclusion can be daunting and isolating. Come learn more about Scripture and LGBTQ inclusion, meet other affirming Christians from around the country and the world, and hear from a diverse group of leading voices in this conversation at our conference!
Whether you are LGBTQ or straight, you are welcome at the Reconcile and Reform Conference. Whether you are LGBTQ-affirming or not, if you are open to learning more, we would love to have you.
Parents in Process
Are you a Christian parent who has an LGBTQ child and lots of questions? Are you wrestling with what it means to honor God and continue to love and embrace your child after they’ve come out? If so, you are not alone on this journey. We will be offering a program for parents just like you!
Pastors in Process
Are you the pastor of a non-affirming church who wants to move the conversation on LGBTQ inclusion forward in your congregation? We are hosting a private, off-the-record gathering specifically for pastors of non-affirming churches who want to move the conversation on LGBTQ inclusion forward in their churches.
Our Core Values
Love for God
We seek to honor God with everything we do, with our lives and with our relationships.
Love for the Bible
We love the Bible and revere it as the Word of God, inspired by God and authoritative for Christian life and practice.
Love for the Church
We love the church, and we are compelled by our love for the church to help the body of Christ truly be the hands and feet of Jesus.
