A CONFERENCE FOR CHURCH PLANTERS, PASTORS, AND LEADERS.

Charleston, SC

APRIL 21-22 / SEACOAST CHURCH

Your Story
is Our Story

Stories define us. To know someone well is to know their story – to understand the experiences that have shaped them, the trials, and turning points that have tested them. These are stories of adventure, love, faithfulness, perseverance, transformation, and stories of miracles.

The story of ARC is made up of many individual stories like this, from churches, pastors, partners, and leaders who are committed to seeing a thriving church in every community, reaching people with the message of Jesus. We share this vision and are committed to seeing God continue to write His story around the world.

This story is not finished. It is just unfolding—because of you. Every church planted, every life changed, and every community transformed, is another page in the story. Your story is our story. There is no us without you.

The registration fee covers your admission to conference. It also includes lunch both days, access to app sessions, sponsor booths, the ARC lounge and the After Party. It does not include transportation or lodging.

How can I edit or add to my registration?

You can go back to our registration system. From there, you should be able to edit your current registration. If you have questions or any trouble, you can email Lauren Lebrun at [email protected].

When will I receive my ticket/wristband?

You will receive an automated email confirmation from Brushfire immediately after you register. We will be mailing out a Conference Attendee Packet that will include your wristbands along with some helpful information about the conference to the address you provided on your registration. We will mail this at the beginning of April so that you receive it in time for the conference. Your wristband will serve as your admission into the conference, so please bring it with you.

Are day or session passes available?

Day and session passes are not available at this time. We recommend that you reserve your place by registering in full for the conference as tickets will sell out.

Do you offer refunds for tickets?

In order to best steward our resources, we are unable to offer refunds for tickets purchased, unless there is an emergency situation. We are able to transfer tickets to another conference or encourage attendees to donate their tickets back to open up room for others to attend.

Can I transfer my registration to another person?

Yes! Please email your name, the name of the person taking your registration and their email address to [email protected]. Please note that we are unable to give refunds but will help you transfer your registration as best we can.

Will childcare be provided?

While families are extremely important to us, because the ARC Conference is an adult event, there will not be childcare available. For circumstances where it is mandatory for an infant to attend, there will be a nursing mothers room available.

What meals are included at conference?

Lunch is provided both days. We will have a snack bar at our ARC Lounge in the foyer throughout the conference that will be open to all attendees, as well as an After Party concluding the conference where a late dinner will be provided. There will be a long dinner break between App Sessions and the evening Main Session both days. If you have food allergies or specific dietary needs, we encourage you to bring supplemental snacks. 

Do you give letters of invitation for VISA applications for international travelers?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide letters of invitation. If you have any further questions about travel, etc. you can contact Will Johnson at [email protected].

Sponsors

At ARC, we believe in not doing ministry alone. So we have some great ministry partners that we work together with. These are men and women in organizations that believe in you, the church planter, and invest eagerly to help us provide the best resources possible to our church planters. They are committed to building the Kingdom above all else, and we are proud to partner with them in ministry.

If you’re interested in becoming a conference sponsor, please email [email protected].
