Membership and Donations


ARC financially supports the ARC Emerging Leaders Fellowship, the annual gathering of the theopoetics working group at the meetings of the American Academy of Religion, and the annual Theopoetics Conference for practitioners and scholars. Future possibilities are being explored in regards to regional events and periodic online seminars. Your donation to ARC signals (1) your interest in the dynamic work that is coming from the exploration of theopoetics and (2) concretely helps us to maintain the journal and secure space for Fellowship retreat and events including the annual AAR meetings and conference sites. ARC is a 501(c)3 charity philanthropy, so your donations are tax-deductible.

Your $30 donation to ARC allows you to enter you into membership in The Association for Theopoetics, what we call those who are monetary supporters of ARC’s work. It also allows you access to member rates for ARC events and resources available through the ARC Studio.

For logistical purposes, memberships will always run from February 1st through January 31st of the following year. This helps us track where our support is coming from, how much is coming in year-to-year, and from whom.

If you would like to be a supporting member of ARC and identify yourself as member of The Association for Theopoetics, but the $30 membership fee is too much of an obstacle, please be in contact with ARC’s Executive Director.
