The Apostolic Johannite Church is proud to present the twenty-first annual AJC Conclave – May 21 – May 23rd, 2021.
After twenty years of in person Conclaves – owing to a global pandemic and our wish to provide education and fellowship in a safe environment – Conclave 2021 will be entirely online.
Each year the people of the AJC, friends and family gather together to socialize, learn, build our skills and deepen our community. It is an amazing opportunity for spiritual growth and insight to modern Gnostic practice..
The venue and circumstances of our present moment may be unique but like every year preceding it, Conclave remains a rich opportunity to deepen your practice, education and experience of Gnosticism and the Apostolic Johannite Church.
Conclave offers lectures, workshops and panel discussions selected to develop ministry skills, support the work of church leaders both lay and ordained and deepen and enrich the spiritual lives of attendees. As always, we welcome you, no matter who you are or what your spiritual path, to join us for this unique week. You can come for all or part and participate as much or as little as you’d like. However you choose, we welcome you into our household.
Our theme this year is Modern Gnosis
The Apostolic Johannite Church is excited to welcome and present Dr. Glen Fairen as our Keynote speaker- and he will be presenting on The Meaning of the Occult.
