What is a conference? Maybe not what you think!
Conference: The act of conferring.
Confer: To grant, bestow or give. To converse, exchange ideas, consult together, deliberate and talk over- often in order to take action. From the Latin “con-” (together) and “ferre” (to carry, bear, bring).
The art of conferring is literally about unity! Bringing together, bearing life together, and igniting the callings we carry. Our aim is to restore these aspects of conference through focused times of discussion, unique opportunities for participation as well as the shared teaching, intimate corporate worship, and empowering ministry reflected at our monthly gatherings. A foundational design of Resurgence that sets it apart is our team approach – conferring with each other to get the fullest picture of who God is and what His heart is after. We hope you will join us as we translate that culture into a multi-day gathering – a true “conference”!

I REGISTERED ONLINE, WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
We’re excited you’ve decided to join us! You will receive an email confirming your registration and payment.

If you need any further assistance or have questions, feel free to contact us.
DOES REGISTRATION COVER THE WHOLE CONFERENCE?
Yes, registration covers all sessions of the conference.
SOMETHING CAME UP. CAN I GET A REFUND?
Resurgence event registrations are non-refundable upon purchase, but are fully transferrable – you are more than welcome to gift your registration!
CAN I REGISTER FOR JUST ONE NIGHT?
We do not offer registration for individual sessions. The conference is built around unique interactive elements and interrelated teachings and activities that build on each other. It’s designed to be experienced as a whole, together in community. For those who choose to register for the whole event, but will miss certain portions, we encourage you to connect with friends to confer about what you missed! The only portion of the Conference where registration is not required is the Saturday night at 7pm as it will be a regular Resurgence Edmonton gathering open to all.
IS THIS EVENT FOR A SPECIFIC AGE GROUP?
We are inviting people of all ages to gather with us and hope to see intergenerational connections and ministry happening!
WILL CHILDCARE BE PROVIDED?
Families are a valuable part of our community. We will have the Parents’ Room at Terwillegar Community Church available for your own use, though a children’s track or supervised care are not provided. Children 12 and up must be fully registered.
CAN WE REGISTER AS A GROUP?
Yes, we would encourage you to register with a group from your faith community! As a heads up, because of the community nature of our conference, your group may be placed into different cohorts for specific sessions. Our registration system allows you to register up to 10 people at one time. To register them, you just need first and last names with an email address for each registrant. It is important to us to know who specifically is attending! We will be e-mailing each participant in advance of the Conference to prepare them for what to expect and how to prepare their hearts.
WE’RE ATTENDING AS A GROUP. CAN WE RESERVE SEATS TOGETHER?
Seating is not assigned. It is on a first come first served basis for all attendees. Seating will also be in various configurations and cohorts to allow for discussion and interaction throughout the conference.
