Rethinking Forum 2024

**One-Day Pass**

June 15th, 2024

This is a special link to sign up for the Saturday, June 15th sessions of the 2024 Rethinking Forum in Philadelphia, PA. Please consider joining us!

For one perspective of what attending an RF is like, check out this article.

Who is it for?

Rethinking Forum 2024 (RF ’24) is designed for people who share both a love for Jesus and a love for Hindu people. We call these kinds of people “Alongsiders”, people who want to help Hindus explore what devotion to Jesus means. There are a wide variety of opinions within the network regarding appropriate convictions and practices, and we embrace the diversity.

This article, What is an Alongsider?, identifies both character qualities and activities we strive to model.

Testimonials from last year’s Rethinking Forum in Dallas:

“The Rethinking Forum has helped me grow tremendously in my understanding of my Hindu friends’ culture and beliefs! The variety of speakers sharing their expertise and experiences have given me a more holistic understanding of my Hindu friends and how to love them well…”

“The RF conference is incredibly helpful in understanding Hindus and how best to come alongside them with the love of Jesus!”

“It was so encouraging to hear from others who have a passion to come alongside Hindus, as I felt like I wasn’t so alone…”

“Rethinking Forum is a phenomenal way to network with other like-minded individuals who desire to humbly love Christ, their Hindu neighbors, + walk alongside them… Highly recommend this conference! You can’t get content like this anywhere else.”
“I was definitely challenged at this year’s Rethinking Forum. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy myself–I had a wonderful time meeting people who share a common vision, especially one that is rare where we come from. But boy were we challenged. I’m thankful for the decades of experience and wisdom that is represented in each conversation that was had at the forum. “
“As a digital participant, I felt it was so well managed and I felt so cared for. It was an excellent experience!”
“The RF seems to be the largest and most diverse gathering of people befriending Hindus in the United States…”
