Conference Weeks

What is Conference?

This week (November 2021) our degree students are all meeting together for our second Conference of this academic year.

Conferences happen bi-monthly, and are an integral part of life as a degree student with Reign Ministries. It is here that students receive interactive lectures facilitated by highly trained and experienced staff. All of our teaching is tailored towards application in ministry practice.  Each year group will be doing different classes in different rooms but at the same time. 

Typically, Conferences run from Monday to Friday at a residential conference centre in Herefordshire. They not only include facilitated learning from 10am-6pm every day, but also provide an opportunity to worship, eat, and socialise together. It is a time that students, Reign staff, and the wider Reign family can come together to learn, grow, and share in community together.

What Happened During The Pandemic?

As our students are placed all across the UK, these times of coming together, doing life and learning alongside one another, make these weeks special. They are treasured times among all who attend, and during the pandemic, were very missed.

During the last 18 months we did our best to navigate the COVID restrictions, whilst keeping to our values of community and sharing together. Our students were still in their classes, albeit virtually. And we adapted what our connection points looked like outside of the classroom, as we were mindful of Zoom overload.

What About Now?

Now that we are able to be together again we have begun to regain a sense of what the new ‘normal’ looks like for us. And despite all of the extra coronavirus tests and hand sanitiser, our students and community continues to flourish. We cherish the richness that is found in being together as a community.  This intangible aspect of studying with Reign Ministries is usually one of each student’s highlights when they graduate and reflect on the course.

If you would like to be part of a loving, life-giving and disciple-making community and get a degree at the same time enquire below.
