What Is LTN Con?

Love Thy Nerd exists to show the love of Jesus to nerds and nerd culture. We started LTN Con to bring our community together while providing the tools needed to help you love and serve your nerdy neighbors better, like Jesus would. LTN Con 2022 features  keynote speaker Jaclyn Parrish (Southwestern Seminary), breakout sessions focusing on specific areas of nerdom, open gaming, events, giveaways, and more! The theme of LTN Con 2022  is “Get Out of Your Comfort Zone” and we are encouraging nerds to explore different fandoms, learn new games, play with new people, and participate in a breakout on a topic that isn’t familiar to them in order to understand another area of nerd culture they may not know much about.

Who Is LTN Con For?

LTN Con is for anyone and everyone, not just for Nerds! If you’re interested in learning how to connect with nerds, LTN Con is for you too! Whether it’s learning about nerd culture from our keynote speaker, breakout sessions from experts in the field, playing tabletop or video games, meeting new friends (or online friends IRL for the first time), or discovering a new nerdy passion, there will be something for you! We’d love to see you there! 

When Is LTN Con?

LTN Con will take place October 14th-16th! 

We also host a special night for our supporters (otherwise known as the Fellowship of the Nerd) the day before LTN Con kicks off. For more information on that and to join the Fellowship visit lovethynerd.com/partner.

Where Is LTN Con?

LTN Con is being hosted by our partners at Sojourn Church New Albany in New Albany, Indiana located just outside Louisville, Kentucky.

How Much Does It Cost?

Early bird registration is $75 for adults and $25 for teens! Early bird prices expire August 20th. Admission for adults starts at $100 beginning August 21st. 

Why Should I Come?

Why not? We have some expert speakers that are deep and well versed in nerd culture with countless stories, wisdom, and experiences to speak on. An open gaming area complete with a game library as well as a place to bring and share your favorites. Events and tournaments with games ranging from Magic The Gathering to Mario Kart. A local vendor hall with everything from games to artwork and last but not least, giveaways! Who doesn’t love giveaways?
