2016-2017 Season Subscriptions

Frequently Asked Questions

The Carey Institute exists to provide accessible, practical, and transformational theological education to the whole people of God. We do this through the hosting of workshops, seminars, and retreats at our home campus in Vancouver, British Columbia, and in local churches across Western Canada. Season Subscriptions offer individuals, small groups, and churches excellent options for resourcing and enrichment to their spiritual journeys. Below is a list of frequently asked questions about this new program.

Why should I purchase a season subscription?

These packaged are designed for individuals and groups who wish to deepen their journey with Christ through participating in workshops, seminars, and retreats. The topics covered in these events are designed to support the ministry of the local church and to provide interaction between members of different church communities. The subscriptions provide savings opportunities to those seeking additional resourcing, to small groups who wish to attend an event together, and to churches who wish to provide supplementary equipping to their congregations.

Am I able to use one of my passes to bring a friend to an event?

Yes, the passes included in each package are eligible for use by a group for a single event, by an individual for multiple events, or any combination thereof—up to the amount of passes purchased. For example, if you purchase a Multi 7 pack, you can attend one event with two other friends, and still have four passes available to you for other events.

I’ve purchased a subscription. How do I register for an event?

If you are a subscription-holder, you can register for events by contacting the Carey Institute administrator by email at or by phone at 604-225-5917. Registrations must be made a minimum of 14 days prior to the date of the event of interest.

I have a subscription. I do not plan to attend an upcoming event, but I have a friend who wishes to come. May I gift one of my passes to my friend?

Yes. Passes are transferable to third parties on a pass-by-pass basis. In order for the transfer to be valid, the subscription-holder must contact the Carey Institute administrator at or 604-225-5917 a minimum of two weeks prior to the date of the event in question. For phone requests, you will be asked a number of security questions to verify your identity.

I’ve signed up for an upcoming event with one of my passes, but am now unable to attend. What can I do?

Season subscriptions are non-refundable, however they are transferable 14 days prior to the event or earlier. You may convert your registration to another event, or transfer your registration to a friend to attend the event you intended to join. Just contact the Carey Institute administrator for assistance.

What events are eligible for my seasons subscription?

All single-day events listed at (unless otherwise noted) between September 2016 and June 2017 are eligible for season pass use. The use of multiple passes for multi-day events will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and must be requested to the Carey Institute administrator. Passes are not eligible for use in Carey Theological College or Carey Institute credit courses unless otherwise noted. This program cannot be used in lieu of, or combined, with any other existing promotional offer.

I am a leader at my church. Am I able to distribute passes to members of my congregation for use at one or more Carey Event?

Yes! Our subscriptions are designed for churches to take advantage of in providing supplementary resourcing to members of your congregation! These passes can be used by individuals in separate events, or as a group attending a single event together. We also have options for hosting private events either at CAREY or in your church building. For details on hosting a private event, please contact the Carey Institute administrator.
