CONFERENCE DETAILS

Registration is now open for the 2020 Q Christian Fellowship Conference in sunny Fort Lauderdale, January 2ND-5TH, 2020!

Join us for Q Christian Fellowship’s annual Conference in January. This year’s gathering is called The Great Communion; as we grow as an organization, we have discerned the need to shift our posture in critical conversation from one of debating who is right to one centered on the fellowship made possible through Christ: The Great Communion. Along with incredible keynote speakers and breakout session leaders, we’ll have Affinity Gatherings for Clergy, People of Color, Trans and Gender-Expansive identities, and more!


The Great Communion

The theme for the 2020 Q Christian Fellowship Conference is The Great Communion. The Conference passage is 1 Corinthians 12:22-26. We aim to explore how we ‘commune’ with one another while honoring many layers of diversity, including differences that are racial, theological, ethical, political, etc. Communion with one another teaches us to fully see and value one another rather than dividing off into bubbles of shared identities, beliefs, or values. We aim to encourage each unique person to be seen, valued and supported by our community, within our diversity and even amidst disagreement. We believe this is only made possible through centering our identity in Christ. Our focus will include discussion of the following concepts:

Identity in Christ
Oneness
Re-member
Abide
Table
Shared meal
Commune
Exchange & Vulnerability
Fracture & Repair
Empathy

Compassion
Equity
Creating Space
Relational Equity
"Nothing diminishes my value.”
Value/See Another’s Being
To be Loved/Known–Unconditional Love
Mirror
Humanity
Embrace Relational Paradoxes
