The Advent Conspiracy is an international movement whose stated purpose is "to bring a deeper meaning to Christmas" during the Christian season of Advent that immediately precedes it. The movement advances its four founding principles:

Background

In 2006, Pastors Greg Holder, Chris Seay, Rick McKinley founded the organization in opposition to what they saw as the hyper-consumerism to which they found many Christians falling victim. They proposed spending less on gifts and giving more to the poor. In the first year, Advent Conspiracy partnered with Living Water International to build a high-capacity well in Nicaragua and 13 wells in Liberia.

Today, the Advent Conspiracy movement consists of thousands of churches and organizations around the globe. Advent Conspiracy does not accept donations and instead encourages every church, organization, family, and individual to donate their funds how they best see fit.

Advent Conspiracy started with a few churches partnering with Living Water International. Today, co-conspirators from around the world give to a variety of organizations that support causes like the water crisis, anti-human trafficking, homeless shelters, hunger initiatives, education, natural disaster relief, and refugees.

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