2020 Theology Conference (Postponed)

COVID-19 Notice

The board of directors of Reformed Forum considered options for our 2020 Theology Conference scheduled for October at Hope OPC in Grayslake, Illinois. We considered a range of proposals, such as changing the location or hosting a virtual event.

Given the current restrictions in Illinois, numerous logistical factors regarding the event, and the uncertainty of the situation due to the pandemic, the board have decided to postpone the theology conference to October 2021. It is with heavy hearts that we do so, since this is always a special time of fellowship for our community. Nonetheless, we are resolved to meet next year for an even better conference.

We will process refunds for each of the tickets that were purchased. It could take a while for this to be reflected on your credit card statement. If you have any questions, please contact us.
