The ONA Coalition’s webinar series is designed both for Open and Affirming congregations and for churches taking their first steps towards an ONA covenant. Individual registration at $25 is for three or fewer people. Church Group registration at $75 is for four or more people. There is no limit on the number of participants in a Church Group in 2021.

If you will be bringing additional people (up to 2 more with individual or unlimited with Group or Group Season Pass), you will share all log-in information with them. That means the person listed on the group registration will be in change of making sure to share event details. If registering a group, you only select One Group Ticket to purchase.

We have brought back the Season Pass, which allows participation in all the webinars for a single price. An Individual Season Pass is $100 and a Group Season Pass is $200. The Individual Season Pass, unlike the individual rate above, is limited to one person, but groups of two or more may take advantage of the Group Season Pass, which is a discount of $400 over the individual registration rate.
