ROFTERS stands for Readers Of First Things. The following is a list of ROFTERS who are interested in convening discussion circles based on the magazine. If you would like to join a group, please contact the organizers.

If you would like to start such a group in your area, please send us your contact information. (You can email us at ft@firstthings.com.) ROFTERS groups are entirely independent and self-organized. The convener takes the initiative, and from there on it is up to the group whether to meet monthly or less often; whether to meet in a home, an office, or a church; whether to discuss one article or to take on all the subjects addressed in that month’s issue.

Groups are listed alphabetically by state name, with groups outside the United States listed last:
