Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

Is there an in person option for Leadership Institute?

No, not this year. Leadership Institute is all online.

After careful discernment and monitoring governmental guidance and scientific recommendations on the spread of COVID-19, we’ve determined it most prudent to pivot to an all online Leadership Institute.

We have never been more committed to equip, strengthen and inspire churches and church leaders and we are excited to deliver the Leadership Institute experience to you in this new way.

Is there special pricing for students, young adults, international guests or groups?

Due to the nature of the online conference experience this year, there are no special prices or discounts. There is one great low price available for all participants.

Early Bird Prices

We are unable to make exceptions or adjustments to pricing after the Early Bird deadline on September 1. Your understanding is appreciated.

When do I select my Breakout Sessions for Friday, September 25?

You will have the opportunity to select whichever Breakout Session you'd like to watch the day of the event. There is no need to pre-select these sessions during registration.

How do I access the Online Conference on the day of the event?

Instructions will be emailed to all registered participants 1 to 2 weeks prior to the conference. We promise it will be easy to access and navigate, and we will provide easy to follow instructions.

Registration Questions

What is your cancellation and refund policy?

The entirety of the conference content will be available for participants for 1 year after the live event ends. With this extended access there is no need to cancel your registration if find you are unable to participate on the days of the live event. However, if your circumstances change and you no longer wish to have access to the conference content, cancellations for a full refund are accepted through September 1. We are unable to offer a refund after September 1.

Do we need a separate registration for everyone in our group?

Yes. Each registration purchased is intended for one participant. This is on the honor system. We trust if your team intends to watch the conference together that you will purchase a registration for each participant. Each participant needs their own registration with a unique email address to access the virtual platform and for the 1 year access to the video library after the live event.

We want to register a large group. Can you help?

Yes! We are so grateful you have a large group participating at Leadership Institute. Call us at 913-232-4139 or email us at so we can connect and determine the best way for your large group to register. We will work to make the process as simple as possible for you.

What should I do if one of our group members does not have an email address?

Our registration software and virtual event platform requires that each participant registers and logs in using a unique email address. We are unable to make an exception. If someone from your group does not have an email address, we recommend using a general church email address, the personal email address for someone else in your group or creating a gmail account for this group member.

Is there a limit on group registration?

Yes. There is a limit of 10 group members per registration form. If you have more than 10 in your group, you will need to create a new registration for the additional members.
