There are several ways to join OCW. You can join online (see below), or you can print out a membership form and mail it with your check for the dues to the address provided. You may also become a member at the time you register for one of our conferences. In addition to your membership dues, you would then pay the member fee of $25 to attend the one-day conference instead of the nonmember fee of $50. You will also pay less than a nonmember to attend our four-day summer conference — if you register before July 1.

Or if you want to see what we’re all about, you can attend one of our one-day conferences as a nonmember, paying the nonmember fee of $50 to register. If, by the end of the day, you decide to join OCW, the $50 will be applied toward your initial membership dues plus the $25 you would have paid as a member.

Regardless of how—or when—you join, you will be asked to sign our statement of faith, indicating that you agree with it. Members are asked to sign their agreement with the statement of faith each time they renew their membership.

How much does membership cost?

Annual membership costs are as follows:

  • Single membership (under 62): $60
  • Couples membership: $75
  • Full-time student membership: $35
  • Senior membership (62 & over): $35

These amounts will make you a member for one full year from your date of payment.
