Renewing the Church, Reaching the World
Following Jesus is increasingly complicated and challenging, especially when we consider the controversies in the church and hostility of our culture. How do Christians pursue renewal and reach the world? Join us for our annual THINK conference on March 1-3. It’s time to re-engage with the timeless truth of the Word and chart a path forward for the glory of God.

We believe that theology is not just for adults. That's why we've developed age-appropriate content for children (kindergarten-6 grade). At kidTHINK, your child will have the opportunity to work through theological concepts taught at a level they can understand. Register for kidTHINK|24. Questions? Contact Becky Brooking.
kidTHINK is only possible because of a team of volunteers! Would you partner with us in teaching our children who and what to build their lives on at kidTHINK|24? Volunteer for kidTHINK
The bookstore will accept credit, debit, check, and cash.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Volunteer spots are available for the general conference, kidTHINK, and child care. Sign up to volunteer!
Please note that if you sign up to volunteer and ALSO plan to attend the conference (all or in part), you also need to submit a THINK registration.
Registration will stay open through the beginning of the event. We encourage you to register online ahead of time to make the check-in process go more quickly. If you do not register online prior to the conference, you may register onsite at check-in.
No, you do not need to print a confirmation, but please make sure you received a confirmation email saying you were registered.
THINK will not be livestreamed, but videos of the sessions and audio of the breakouts will be posted on our Resources page after the conference.
