Welcome to REA:APPRRE

Welcome to the Religious Education Association, an Association of Professors, Practitioners, and Researchers in Religious Education. We meet and work together to advance substantive research, probing scholarship and practical approaches to religious education, particularly through our journal Religious Education and our scholarly monograph series Horizons in Religious Education.

Plans are well underway for next summer’s meeting, with a theme of “Becoming Good Ancestors.” We are already moving toward the following year as well. Help us plan for the 2023 summer meeting — for the first time we will be asking members to propose a theme, and inviting members to vote on which theme to use. More details live here on the website. If you’d like some coaching as you work on a proposal for that meeting, there is a deadline of November 15, 2021. We will be running a workshop during the November 3 Fall Gathering to offer coaching on developing a proposal. Completed program proposals are due on January 1, 2022 for the summer 2023 meeting.

REA President Boyung Lee invites you to propose a theme for our 2023 annual meeting.
