Frequently Asked Questions



WHAT IS Q COMMONS?

Q Commons brings the Q National event experience to your community. Join thousands of participants in cities around the world as we gather to learn and consider how to advance good in our local communities.

WHAT IS Q?

Q equips Christians on how to thoughtfully engage our cultural moment. Through immersive learning experiences where no topic is off limits, leaders are encouraged to think, process and consider their approach on the most difficult cultural conversations they will face. Our method of learning is simple: exposure, conversation, and collaboration. We didn’t want to create just another conference, but instead, make an intentional effort to platform the best and brightest ideas that are shaping our world and interact with them. Q is not for passive listeners, but for active leaders hungry to shape the future of culture.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY?

Full refunds are allowed within 24 hours of the time of purchase. Partial refunds will be available before October 1st totaling to 50% of your purchase amount. Tickets purchased after October 1st are non-refundable.

DOES Q OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS?

Scholarships are not offered to the Q Commons events. However, we’ve intentionally created a lower price to allow as many as people as possible to attend. Should you require additional financial help, perhaps you can inquire from a friend, your local pastor or workplace to provide assistance.
