Location & Directions
The 2023 GPTS Spring Theology Conference will take place at Woodruff Road Presbyterian Church in Simpsonville, SC. The main sessions will be in the auditorium, and other special events will take place in classrooms throughout the building. The catered dinner on Tuesday will be served in the Gymnasium. The Conference bookstore will be housed in the Gymnasium as well. The church facility is easily accessible from I-85, and there is ample parking for conference attendees. There are many restaurants nearby to the church. Please note that pre-conference activities will take place at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, 200 E. Main St. Taylors, SC 29687.
Food & Lodging
Conference attendees may register for catered meals on Tuesday (Dinner) and Wednesday (Lunch) at the point of registration, though this is optional. There is a wide variety of restaurants on Woodruff Road and nearby to the church. Conference attendees are responsible for their own lodging arrangements, though we are happy to help!
In 2022, we made special arrangements with the following local hotels: Drury Inn ($103/night; Confirm by 2/5/22; Group No. 2449545), Marriott ($129/night; Confirm by 2/7/22), Cambria Hotel ($99/night; Confirm by 2/14/22), and Hampton Inn ($114/night; Confirm by 2/5/22). Please contact us (email@example.com) or call the Seminary (864.322.2717) for more information.
When is the 2023 Conference?
Tuesday, March 7 - Thursday, March 9, 2023
Where is the 2023 Conference?
The conference itself will be held at Woodruff Road Presbyterian Church in Simpsonville, SC. However, pre-conference activities will take place at Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Taylors, SC. The GPTS Explore prospective student open-house will also take place at the Seminary. Other fellowship gatherings will take place at other locations, as indicated in our "Events" section.
How much does it cost to attend the 2023 Conference?
We try to make registration simple and affordable. The registration price for the 2023 Conference includes attendance, but not the optional catered meal or lodging. We have made special arrangements with local hotels. See our "Food & Lodging" section (above) for more information.
The full pricing schedule is available on our Registration Page. There are special rates listed for students and their wives. Youth under the age of 18 years old are permitted to attend the conference free of-charge. The early-bird registration rate will expire after 2/1, and there is a final jump in price after 3/6.
Please note that as of three years ago, the price of the Conference has been dramatically lowered, and all special discount codes have been discontinued. We made this change in order to simplify the administrative work of the Seminary staff. If you have any questions about pricing, please contact Director of Advancement & Admissions Mr. Zachary Groff at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 864.322.2717 ext. 324.
Where can I watch the Tuesday and Wednesday evening sessions online?
Where will I stay overnight?
Conference attendees are responsible for their own lodging arrangements, though we are happy to help! We have made special arrangements with local hotels. See our "Food & Lodging" section (above) for more information.
What do attendees usually wear?
While some of us will be wearing the clothes we would usually wear to church on Sunday, most of us dress down a notch (or two). Most men will wear button-down shirts and khaki slacks, but some men will attend the conference in polos and jeans. Most ladies wear modest slacks, skirts, or dresses, with similarly modest tops. Be sure to bring footwear that is comfortable for walking, as you will be moving between the sanctuary and the fellowship area quite a bit during the week.
For both men and women, keep in mind that our group will be modest and comfortable. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
How can I register for the 2023 Conference?
You can register online until Monday March 6, 2023. Registration for the Conference will open sometime in the fall of 2022. Click here to register online!
You can also register for the conference on-site at Woodruff Road Presbyterian Church. Register before February 1, 2023 for "Early Bird Tuition." Evening sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday are open to the public, and do not require registration.
What if I need to cancel my registration?
We'll miss you at the Conference! You can cancel a registration and receive a refund of your payment minus a $15 non-refundable deposit, if you cancel on or before February 17, 2023. Cancellations may be requested by contacting Miss Lanie Price (firstname.lastname@example.org or 864.322.2717 ext. 305). Requests for a refund after the deadline will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Can I transfer my registration to someone else?
Yes. Registrations are transferable until Monday, March 6, 2023. You can make substitutions by contacting Miss Lanie Price (email@example.com or 864.322.2717 ext. 305). There is no cost for substitutions.
Who is providing the bookstore?
At this point, we are planning to once again provide the bookstore in partnership with Reformation Heritage Books, Presbyterian & Reformed Publications, Reformation Trust, The Banner of Truth Trust, and other Christian books publishers.
Will I be able to purchase recordings of the sermons and lectures onsite?
No. We have discontinued the production of CD/DVD media. All plenary sessions (lectures and panel discussions) will be available for download at sermonaudio.com/gpts within two weeks of the close of the Conference. Please contact Mr. J. Andrew Wortman the Seminary's Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Will there be a banquet this year?
At this point, we are planning to host our "Spring Scholarship Banquet" on Thursday, March 9. Proceeds from the banquet will benefit the Student Scholarship Fund. For more information, please contact Director of Advancement & Admissions Mr. Zachary Groff at email@example.com or visit gpts.edu/banquet.
Will I get a refund if the Conference is cancelled?
If the Conference is cancelled for any reason (including governmental restrictions affecting gatherings in the State of South Carolina), you will be offered a full refund. In such a contingency, you will be given the option to donate your conference registration payment as a tax-deductible gift to the Seminary.
The Seminary is not liable for any travel restrictions imposed by other jurisdictions. Please see our refund policy for more information.
What precautions are you taking in light of developments surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic?
As has been our practice since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we seek to exercise prudence while avoiding alarmism. Thus, we are looking forward to a fairly typical GPTS Spring Theology Conference experience this March.
We are not requiring masks to be worn at the Conference, though we are not forbidding or discouraging their use by anyone who attends. Please be respectful of others’ decisions with regards to wearing a mask. Likewise, we are not requiring proof of vaccination from attendees. Please be respectful and discreet regarding the matter of vaccination.
We are immeasurably blessed in the Upstate with a cohort of local congregations pastored and governed by godly and wise officers. What we are seeking to do as a Seminary in large part emulates and mirrors what our closest church partners are doing in the area.
If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or if you test positive, please remain at home (or at your hotel) and watch the Conference via livestream. In our various efforts to respond to the pandemic, we desire nothing less than to bring glory to God by promoting the health, holiness, and edification of the Seminary community, our neighbors, our visitors, and our friends. Thank you for praying for your brothers and sisters in the Seminary community, and for following these reasonable directives to the best of your ability.
