Q Why do I have to register for a track?

One of the biggest pieces of feedback we received at the last Summit was the request from people to be able to sign-up for the sessions they wanted to attend.  This also helps us to make sure there will be space in each session for you to attend your choice of workshop.  We believe this will also facilitate the best learning experience as the tracks are being designed to provide both practical learning, but also application through the ‘doing’ of your art form.  So we strongly encourage you to select a track, and attend the 2 out of 3 workshops that are in that track.  The third workshop block for those who select tracks will be your GENERAL ELECTIVE, selected from any of the remaining workshops.  If you don’t feel that you fit into a track, you can select GENERAL ELECTIVE and attend whatever workshop you want!  ELECTIVES are first-come-first-serve, and TRACK WORKSHOPS will give priority to those who are in that TRACK.  Remaining space in those workshops is open to any registrant.

Q Who has previously presented/spoken at The Levite Summit?

A Steve Bell was our keynote speaker in 2017. In past years we have enjoyed Brian Doerksen, Erwin McManus, Roy Salmond, David Ruis and Carolyn Arends as well.  Workshop presenters have included Calum Rees, Pete Davyduck, Alexandra Babbel, Corey Doak, Graham Ord, Jon Buller and many more.

Q I am not an artist or musician but I want to support the Levites in my community. How can I help?

A Well that’s very kind of you! We have a sponsorship program where those who can’t afford to attend receive free registration thanks to your generosity. Simply fill out this online form and we will pass on the blessing.

Q I would love to come but can’t afford the registration.

A Fill out this online form to request a sponsorship.  These are provided on a first come, first serve basis, as they become available based on the sponsorship donations that we receive.  We are praying and inviting people to sponsor registrations this year again, and will offer as many free registrations as we are able, to people with limited financial resources.

Q What are the age limits?

A There are no limits! We welcome everyone at the Levite Summit, but if you are under 18 you need parent or guardian permission. There is a specially designed 2 part workshop session for STUDENTS this year!  The content of the conference will be relevant to a wide age demographic, so young and old are welcome but there are no discounted rates for children.  We trust that the registration fee for the whole weekend including your lunch is a fantastic value as is, but be sure to take advantage of the early bird or group rates which are even more affordable.

Q Is there childcare available?

A We encourage you to make other arrangements for childcare during this event, the nursery will not be open.

Q Can I buy registration for a specific keynote or breakout session?

A There is one rate for the whole weekend.  You cannot register for separate portions or a specific session at a discounted price.  We have kept the cost for the conference as affordable as possible while being able to pay our bills.  For the sake of logistics and our desire for everyone to experience a full depth and breadth of learning we encourage you to take in the whole conference, and cannot offer separate session rates.  However, the worship arts concert portion of the conference is a separate ticketed event that is open to the public, so you can purchase tickets just for the concert HERE.  If you are a conference registrant, your concert ticket is included in your registration.  The pre-conference songwriting intensive has a separate fee of $30.

Q Can I bring my instrument?

A Acoustic instruments and hand drums are welcome!

Q Can I cancel my registration?

A Registrations can be cancelled up to two weeks before the conference for a $20 processing fee, and cannot be accepted after that time.  Our budget is prepared to ensure affordability for registrants and good stewardship for the conference (making sure we can pay our bills).  Last minute cancellations add complexity to administration, but also impact the budget negatively, not to mention others that may not be able to attend in the event of a sell out.  The are a limited number of registrations available.

However, registrations are transferable anytime, even upon arrival at the event, for a $10 processing fee.  Thank you for understanding that last minute changes increase administration time and complexity for the administrative staff.
