FAQ

Will hosting be provided by local families?

Yes. We are offering a limited number of hosting opportunities for those travelling from out of town on a first come, first serve basis. In your registration, check the checkbox indicating that you require hosting, and in the comments textbox let us know of any special hosting needs (dietary restrictions, pet-free, no stairs etc.). Hosting is limited so should you require it we encourage you to register as soon as possible to ensure a spot.

Can I come to the leadership session on the 14th?

The afternoon leadership session on November 14th is open to elders and deacons of NCMI partnering churches. It is also open to those leaders who have been invited by their eldership team to come.

Will childcare be provided?

During all sessions, we are offering a program for children from ages 2-10. To maintain a proper child to teacher ratio, only those children who have been registered in advance will be put into the program. If you do not register your children, please come prepared to have them sit with you in the service. For children under the age of 2, a mother’s room with a live audio feed will be provided. This room includes a play pen, various toys and accessories, rocking chairs, a change table and microwave for all your needs.

Are there discounted tickets?

Yes, if you are a youth (ages 11-18) or if you are a full time college/university student we have a discounted ticket price available upon registration.

I registered after July 31st - why is the registration fee more expensive?

A lot goes on behind the scenes to prepare for such a large conference. For this reason, late registrations are very difficult to accommodate last minute and this is why we charge an additional fee. We encourage you to register early.
