As you may know, the cost to host this training is significant, and can have a serious impact on a congregation's RE budget.  To cover the significant cost and reduce risk of cancellation, a non-refundable deposit of $150 is required to ensure your spot/s.  Only one deposit is required, regardless of the number of participants.  Full payment is due by August 4th.  You may register without a deposit, but please understand that your spot/s cannot be guaranteed.  A deposit counts toward fulfilling the full payment.  

You may choose one of the following payment options that will work best for your congregation.  If the number of participants you are paying for reduces after August 4th, you will be refunded the appropriate amount, minus a $150 cancellation fee.  There is a cap of 15 participants total in the training, so please register as soon as you know you intend to send someone!
