The Love and Fidelity Network’s annual conference aims to connect college men and women to leading scholars and experts in order to equip them with the best arguments and resources in support of marriage, family, and sexual integrity.  Participants will also find ample opportunity to network with and learn from each other, and attend sessions to help develop leadership skills in bringing the “love and fidelity” message back to their respective campuses.


This is a critical time to equip the next generation of leaders to defend marriage and advocate for sexual integrity within their university communities and beyond. But we can’t do that without the generosity of our friends and supporters. Please consider becoming a Love and Fidelity Network Conference Sponsor through one of these sponsorship levels. Or donate directly here. We are so grateful for your support of our students.


This year’s speakers have shared a fantastic selection of recommended articles, book reviews, reports, website, movie reviews, and more. No reading is required in advance of the conference, but participants often find these readings enhance their conference experience.
