Please review the benefits of the various plans provided at the top of this webpage. The lifetime memberships generally provide the best value over the long term and simplify your participation by avoiding renewal fees. If you are a student, interested family member, or representative of an organization, be sure to consider those plan options.
Yes, for just $5 more than the individual membership, any family member can share the account. Under the five-year family membership, everyone will have access to Garland’s Encyclopedia online and other regular GEN member benefits.
No, everyone is welcome! Please join us if you have any level of interest in ethnodoxology or the use of local arts in communication. Our field also draws heavily on anthropology, theology, worship studies, and linguistics, so we welcome your insights and contributions in these areas.
Organizational membership is for educational institutions, churches, missions, or other para-church organizations. This membership provides your organization with a link on our web site, allowing others who share your interests to find you more easily. Each organizational membership may have two representatives, and each representative enjoys full GEN benefits, including participation in forums, holding an office, and applying for certification.
All member profiles are accessible only to members of the organization. Additionally, you may opt to use a pseudonym and/or avatar for your profile, forum posts, and other member-to-member interactions. If you have further questions or concerns about this system, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a student in a degree program or a participant in an GEN-sponsored ethnoarts workshop like Arts for a Better Future or the Introduction to Ethnodoxology course, we welcome you to apply for this discounted rate. Establishing a lifetime membership at the student rate gives you the absolute best long-term value for your money and demonstrates your commitment to the field.
Sponsored membership is granted via a special application to nationals from underserved communities demonstrating an involvement in ethnodoxology initiatives. If you feel you qualify and are unable to pay for a membership, please feel free to apply for an GEN sponsored membership.
