2020 Theology Conference

The seventh annual Theology Conference will be held October 10, 2020 at Hope Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Grayslake, Illinois. Our conference theme is “The Attributes of God.”

COVID-19 Notice

At present, we are still planning for a full, in-person conference in the Fall. But given the issues surrounding the novel coronavirus pandemic, we advise people to hold off booking flights, rental cars, or hotels until we gain clarity on what we can expect for October. Moreover, specific details (such as the location of the post-conference gathering) are subject to change as our partners may have their own policies or contingencies that could affect our plans.

If we are unable to host an in-person event or if any other matters pertaining to COVID-19 prevent you from attending, you may obtain a full refund for your registration expenses upon request.
