Join REA or Renew Your Membership

REA transferred to a new membership system in October 2014. If you have questions about the new system or your membership status, please contact Lucinda Huffaker.

REA dues are determined with a sliding scale based on income. As a benefit of membership, you will receive  five issues of Religious Education, the official journal of REA. Your membership is valid for one year.

You can join using an online membership form, which accepts payment through PayPal (including all major credit cards). Joining online means you will have nearly immediate access to the complete archives of the journal back to 1906 through Taylor & Francis Online. You will also receive five print issues of Religious Education through the mail.

If you are renewing your membership, then please use our online membership form to process your renewal.

Our membership quick reference sheet (PDF) provides a walkthrough of the membership renewal process.

We much prefer you to use our secure online membership process, but if you cannot do so you may download a printed form and send it to us with your check.

For further questions regarding membership registration and renewals please contact Lucinda Huffaker at

Once you have registered as a member, your name will also appear in our members list. You can also use this list to remind yourself of the email address by which our system knows your membership. If you don’t want to be visible in our members list, please change the privacy settings in your member profile.
