General Conference Info
Who is STRONGER for?
The STRONGER Virtual Conference is open to all, but class topics have been selected primarily for those ages 18 and up. While the classes will be taught from the perspective of Christianity and the Bible, all are welcome to attend regardless of personal beliefs.
What time does STRONGER begin in my city?
STRONGER will begin at 10:00am ET / 7:00am PT. You can use this webpage to find the start time for your home city.
Will translation services be offered?
Most classes will be offered in English, with the exception of one offered in Spanish. While we are unable to offer translation services, all attendees will have access to the replay recordings after the conference. Attendees are welcome to add captions to these video recordings so they can share with their respective groups/ministries.
How much is it to attend STRONGER?
Registration is just $10 between now and October 18th, and $15 beginning October 19th until the day of the conference. You also have the option to add a donated registration to an attendee in a developing country, for an additional $10/$15.
Will the registration close? Can I register the day of?
Registration will remain open all the way through the day of the event! You can register at any time, but we do recommend registering early to take advantage of the lower price.
Can I donate more than one registration for the developing world?
Unfortunately, no. A limitation of our platform is that each registrant can only donate one ticket. But if you are registering more than one person, you can tack on a donated registration to each of those, or team up with other friends and provide donated registrations on each of their registrations!
Can I pick the person to apply my donated registration to?
No, but whoever receives your donation will be extremely grateful!
Who can apply for a donated registration?
Donated registrations are intended for attendees in developing countries, as determined by the United Nations 2020 World Economic Situation and Prospects. You can view a copy of the table from this report HERE. Attendees from countries in Table A would be expected to pay the regular registration fee. Attendees from countries in Tables B and C can pay the fee, or choose to apply for a donated registration.
What if I need a donated registration but do not live in the developing world?
We have attempted to keep the cost of registration as low as possible, but understand that $10 may be a hurdle for some. We encourage local churches to shepherd their congregations and work together to help as many as possible to attend this virtual conference.
How do I apply for a donated registration?
If you reside in a country in the developing world (see the previous question), you can apply for a donated registration. Complete this form to be added to the waiting list for donated registrations. We will add attendees on this list as we receive donations to cover their registration costs -- on a first-come, first-serve basis.
What is your refund / transfer policy?
All registrations are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
Can I watch the conference with a group on one device?
You can, but we don't recommend it. Doing so would mean that everyone watching would need to attend not only the general sessions together, but also the same breakout sessions, the same speed fellowshipping, and the same booths at the expo. Each attendee will receive a unique access code that can be used by exactly one device. It's our hope that by offering the conference at a low admission cost, each person will register their own unique device, and therefore have a conference experience tailored to their own interests.
I need to register more than one person, but the form only allows me to register one person?
Correct. Our registration process only allows one person to be registered at a time. If you have additional people you need to register, please complete the form again for each of them. Please note that a unique email address is required for each registration.
I see that a unique email is required for each registration. What if I don't have enough emails for people in my family/group?
You do need a unique email for each attendee. If necessary, you can create additional email accounts using a free service like Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo.
I see the conference has some sponsors. Can I become a sponsor?
We appreciate your interest, however, the deadline to apply as a sponsor has passed. We aren't able to accept any new applications at this time.
So many classes on the schedule! How do I narrow my choices down?
We suggest taking a look at the "Classes" page on our website. This contains a full list of classes, sorted by topic. Each class title is linked to its description on the "Schedule" page so that you can read more about the class if you want to.
I have an idea for a class that isn't offered...
At this point, our classes have been selected and the roster is full. We've attempted to put together a diverse selection of classes, but also acknowledge that it would be impossible to cover all potential topics. However, it is possible we may have another conference in the future, and will gladly accept suggestions for future class selections.
Do you need any additional teachers? I would love to teach on one of the topics!
We appreciate your enthusiasm! Our teacher roster is full but it is possible we may need teachers for future events. Feel free to email us if you'd like to be considered for a later conference; if you have a website or resume we'd welcome that, too.
Help! There's more than one class in the same session that I'm interested in. What do I do?
We know that choosing among the possible classes may be difficult. In a few cases, classes are offered over multiple sessions; you can check the "Classes" page to see when each session is offered. However, we will also provide all attendees with the replay recordings sometime after the conference is over. You'll be able to listen to all classes on your own time.
Will the classes be recorded? When will the recordings be available?
All classes and general sessions will be recorded. We aren't certain on the exact date that they will become available after the conference is over, but the best guess would be within a month. Only those who have registered will receive the secure link to access the recordings when they are ready.
