The following terms and conditions apply, unless individual passages are stated otherwise. Deviating regulations to the General Terms and Conditions are noted on the specific flyers for the respective event - if available - and the annual programme.

Registrations must be made in writing by post, fax or e-mail, stating your name, telephone number and address. Online registrations are usually also possible via our website:

The registration is binding. The registration deadline is usually six weeks before the seminar begins.


After the binding registration you will receive a registration confirmation with the invoice for the total amount.


For specially designated meetings of the United Evangelical Mission the following discount rules apply:

    All trainees, students or pupils who have not yet reached the age of 29 receive a 30 percent discount.
    Participants from the VEM Young Adults Network are reimbursed 50% of the travel costs from 100 km (2nd class DB).

Proof of eligibility for the reduction must be provided on registration.


After receipt of your confirmation of registration, you have the right, according to the Distance Selling Act, to revoke your contractual declaration in writing within 14 days. After expiry of the statutory cancellation period, cancellations may only be made in writing and within a reasonable time before the start of the event.

The following rules apply to cancellations, unless otherwise stated:

from 4 weeks before = 60 percent

from 1 week before = 100 percent

Services not used will not be reimbursed.

This regulation applies regardless of the reason for deregistration or non-participation! The fee will not be charged if you provide us with the name of a suitable replacement participant or if we can allocate the place elsewhere - for example via a waiting list.

These cancellation conditions apply to both the participation fee for the event and the costs incurred for board and lodging, provided that we have entered into corresponding cancellation obligations with the conference centre. Special terms and conditions apply to individual events (study trips, long-term training courses, etc.), which are referred to in the respective event programme.


If the minimum number of participants is not reached, if instructors or course leaders fall ill or for other important reasons, we reserve the right to cancel the event. We will inform you immediately in writing or by telephone. We will refund participation fees already paid.
