Inspire your church leadership

“I am so proud to belong to a denomination that was not only started by a woman but obviously honors people of all ages, cultures, sex, skin color and talents. I am forever a proud Foursquare member. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and came back home with such a fire in my soul.”

—church council member, first-time attendee (2023)

Kids? We’ve got you covered.

Your kids need to be filled up, too! Foursquare Connection offers NextGen Kids + Youth programming for babies to grade 12. Add kids, from small to tall, onto your registration for just $75. Parental warning: They’ll be begging you to come back all. year. long. 

Kids Love NextGen

“My 5th-grade son loved going and the many fun activities there! He was intentional about making ‘Foursquare friends’ as this was our first convention. He looks forward to seeing them again next year.”

—parent, pastor and first-time attendee (2023)

Give a little. (Take a little.)

It’s an opportunity to serve our pastors and ministers, meet new friends and get a taste of what this whole Connection thing is all about. First-timers love volunteering as it’s such an easy way to meet future friends! Bonus: Volunteers can get up to full reimbursement on their registration! When you register, just note you’d like to volunteer.

Volunteer + meet new friends

“I served as a volunteer, and it was a great experience for me. I met wonderful people!”

—volunteer/attendee (2023)

Earlybird registration is now OPEN

Register now to get the best rate. Rates will go up on February 7. (PS: Don’t forget to snag your hotel room after you register!)

“One of my favorite parts of Foursquare connection is reconnecting with old friends (and meeting new ones!) in the hotel lobby. It’s so fun to catch up and celebrate the amazing way God is moving in their lives. Insider pro tip: leave 30 minutes early to make it to sessions on time, because the lobby is one big reunion”

—newly credentialed minister (2023)
