What is January Adventure?


January Adventure is where thinking about your faith and the Church and learning about Jesus, the Scripture and Christianity may change your life! It's a conference in Emerging Christianity.

Epworth By The Sea where the conference is held.In 2005, L.B. (Buzzy) Pickren founded January Adventure with about 240 souls witnessing its birthing as Marcus Borg and Rev. Will Willimon took the podium at Epworth By The Sea. Since then, the speakers have changed, charged and inspired; key staffers come and go; but January Adventure has kept its ship steady to bring exceptional teachers to progressive Christians at affordable prices still at St Simons Island, GA.

2022 will be our 17th year with 600+ enrollees expected. Thanks for your support. Our next year's speakers are excellent and we expect our attendance to exceed last years. Registration begins in June and will be announced to those that are on our Newsletter mailing via email and also posted on this site. We anticipate next year's (2022) schedule to allow one the opportunity to enjoy both the pleasure of coastal Saint Simons Island, GA and stimulating Emerging Christianity presentations.
