FAQs


Are you watching the weather?

YES! We are monitoring the weather closely. The team at Floris is prepared to care for the parking lots and sidewalks. At this time, we anticipate Training Day will happen as scheduled. We will email ticket holders if that changes. If In Person ticket holders are uncomfortable traveling to Floris because of the weather, they may participate virtually. 


Why are In Person tickets capped at 250?
This is our first-ever hybrid training day and we are SO excited to offer BOTH in person and virtual options. Due to classroom space limitations as well as the amount of work and manpower required to run two events simultaneously, we capped this year's in person registration number at 250. We have unlimited space virtually, so if our In Person tickets run out, we can still provide training day to a multitude of other participants. Note: We increased capacity from 200 to 250 in early January thanks to ticket demand and the hospitality of our host site!


Why are my Virtual ticket options limited?

This is our first-ever hybrid training day and we want to make sure that all participants have the BEST experience possible. It requires quite a bit of Internet bandwidth and equipment to stream multiple sessions simultaneously, so we opted to only stream three workshops at a time. We plan to record all 13 sessions and make those available through the event platform for all ticket holders beginning on January 21. 


Why are  the Kids Ministry, Youth Ministry, and Korean Language workshops only available to In Person ticketholders?

We want to provide all participants the best experience possible and are unable to stream all sessions live due to equipment and Internet bandwidth concerns. We also wanted to offer those sets of participants (Kids Ministry, Youth Ministry, Korean Language) the opportunity to gather together for Training Day in order to share ideas and conversation in person. We plan to record all 13 sessions and make those available through the event platform for all ticket holders beginning on January 21.

Why is the system saying I am already registered?

This event platform ties tickets to individual email addresses and logs the purchaser into the system upon purchase. So, if a person has already purchased one ticket and tries to purchase another they may get caught in a loop. There are several different ways to get out of this loop. 

  •  First, be sure that you are logged out. (At the top right hand corner of the website next to the Register button you will find three small green dots (...). Clicking on those dots will bring up your purchaser menu where you can log out. Once you are logged out, you should be able to purchase another ticket using a different email address. 

  • Another option is to use a different browser to purchase the next ticket. For example, if you purchased a ticket using Chrome and desire to purchase a second ticket, switching to Firefox or Edge should allow you to do so, as you will not be logged in using that browser. 

  • Persons who begin the registration process and enter their email address but then abandon the cart before completing the purchase may be asked to check their email for a link when they return to the site to finish the purchase. Because tickets are tied to email addresses, once you are in the system, the system wants to confirm that you are indeed you. It will send you a magic link via email with a Sign In button. Simply use that button and you should be taken back to the event site in order to complete your purchase. 

What if I want to register multiple people at one time? 

  • Virtual participants can take advantage of Team Pricing ($50/ticket for 4 or more participants) by using the Team Pricing option on the ticket purchase screen. Simply use the second Add to Cart button in the Virtual Ticket box and use the + to select the number of tickets you'd like to purchase. On the next screen you will select your 10:15 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. workshop on behalf of your entire team. On the next screen you will have the option to provide the Name and Email Address for each ticket holder. Then you will proceed to payment. If you do not know the email addresses of your team members at the time of registration they can be added at a later time through the My Purchases section of the website. 

  • In Person teams are WELCOME to participate together at Floris on January 20. Because each In Person ticket is directly tied to seating in workshop classrooms, all In Person team members must register separately. One person can register on their behalf, one ticket at a time, but will need to know the in person team member's email address and workshop choice in order to do so. Please also pay attention to the above FAQ item, as purchasing multiple single In Person tickets back-to-back requires logging out of the system each time. We encourage In Person team members to take advantage of Early-Bird pricing for discounted tickets.

Can I mail in my registration?

All registrations must be made online. If you need assistance registering you can use the information below for assistance. 

Will childcare be provided?

YES! Childcare for In Person ticketholders will be provided by Floris UMC's nursery staff. There will be a place to indicate your desire for childcare when purchasing an In Person ticket. Floris will contact ticketholders that request childcare directly. 


What if I need help?

  • During the registration process, if you run into difficulties or need help registering you can email or call our administrator, Sarah Allen who can walk you through the process. [email protected] or (703) 820-7200. 

  • If you have questions about the workshops or the event itself, you can email [email protected].
