Together 2022 has been canceled

After careful consideration and with heavy hearts, the team for the Together Conference has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Together Conference for both in-person and online. This is due to the various complications brought on by the pandemic and other extenuating circumstances beyond our control that prevent us from providing the excellent conference you deserve.

COMMUNITY’s top priority is the well-being of conference attenders, staff, and conference speakers. We remain committed to the Together Conference and serving our couples and parents with excellence. All those who registered have received a full refund. If you do not see that on your statement, please email
