SEEK22 programming builds upon itself each day. While it is recommend that you attend each day of the SEEK22 to grow linearly, we understand that life can sometimes throw a curveball.

SEEK22 is best experienced in the small group setting where great discussion and camaraderie can be built. However, you may experience SEEK22 from the comfort and safety of your own home, if that is what you desire. Please see our selection of attendance options here and choose the option that is the best for you.

A

For the full SEEK22 experience, each person will need to purchase an Event Pass (or you can buy a group pass and invite more people to join with you!). This provides access to the community online, specific resources for your conference experience, and access to materials after the event has concluded.

A

We ask that every person who plans to watch/attend SEEK22 has their own registration and that personal log-in information is not shared between multiple people. You won’t get the full conference experience without having personalized access to Mission Way, our live engagement hubs, and exclusive content. We’re also putting in protections behind the scenes to prevent link-sharing, which might disrupt your experience if you send your log-in credentials to someone else.

A

We understand that local regulations can change at any time, and we certainly want you to follow those regulations set forth in your area. With this in mind, we are providing the capability for all SEEK22 attendees to participate from both small group locations and from individual homes. If you cannot attend your small group in-person for any reason, please log in to our secure SEEK22 portal to view all of the live content. We still fully recommend that your small group connect with each other over a video conferencing program during the scheduled small group time!

A

You and your small group should purchase a group of Event Passes that represents the size of your group. This provides access for each person to our online resources and community that will add to your overall SEEK22 experience. Each registered group member will also have access to all the talks for 6 months following the event!

A

We’re proud to offer all of our content to each person who registers for SEEK22. Our content builds on itself linearly for maximum spiritual growth. You will be able to access all of the keynotes, impact sessions, and sponsor breakouts that you may have missed while you were away from the conference. For this reason, we only offer packages that span the duration of SEEK22.

A

Unfortunately, you cannot receive a refund of your SEEK22 registration if your internet does not work. As with our in-person conferences, no-shows are not eligible for a refund. We encourage you to check your internet capabilities prior to SEEK22. However, you will have access to all of the SEEK22 content for 6 months following the event, so you have plenty of time to catch up!

A

Every Event Pass and Small Group option provides access to the entire SEEK22 content library for 6 months following the event. We would love for you to return to the talks later in the year to re-invigorate yourself and your faith!

A

After registering, you’ll receive a confirmation email with your unique Mission Way log-in credentials and the link to our platform. If you’re registering during SEEK22, it will take up to 15 minutes for your credentials to be activated within the system, so please be patient!

A

If you are a small group leader or registered yourself, please reach out to us at events@focus.org and we can assist you! Otherwise, if you mistyped a group member’s email address, you can edit that yourself by logging into your registration using the link in your confirmation email, clicking Modify Registration, and then click Edit next to the group member you need to update.

A

While both FOCUS and your small group leader appreciate the heads up, you can absolutely register for SEEK22 here or by asking your group leader to add you to the group registration.
