Advent Conspiracy
Formation2006 (2006)
TypeInternational faith-based movement

The Advent Conspiracy is an international movement whose stated purpose is to "bring a deeper meaning to Christmas" during the Christian season of Advent, which immediately precedes it. It was created in 2006 as a criticism of the sense of consumerism surrounding the holiday. The movement advocates community support projects in place of gift giving.


The organization was co-founded in 2006 by Pastors Greg Holder, Chris Seay, and Rick McKinley in an effort to advocate spending less money on gifts and instead contributing it toward the wellbeing of the community.[1][2] In their first year, Advent Conspiracy partnered with Living Water International to build a high-capacity well in Nicaragua and 13 wells in Liberia.

The Advent Conspiracy movement consists of thousands of churches and organizations. Advent Conspiracy does not accept donations and instead encourages every church, organization, family, and individual to donate their funds directly.

In November 2018, an updated and revised version of the Advent Conspiracy was published by Wonderland Publishing.[needs update]
