Join our efforts to unite in our understanding of past fulfillment by becoming a member of the Preterist Theological Society (PTS).  Currently, the PTS is merely a Facebook group consisting of preterists from all walks of life, and of all backgrounds.  This is a private group, so only serious requests for membership to this group are considered.  Ultimately we would like to formalize the group as a legal entity comprised of scholars, theologians, ministers and leaders of both partial and full preterist ideas.  The inclusion of liberal and conservative scholars, theologians from all preterist backgrounds, active ministers, pastors, Bible teachers, book authors, and students in accredited universities as well as in Christian seminaries are the kind of people we wish to engage and to have join the group.  The purpose of the group is stated on the group page, but it is also stated here:

To promote dialogue concerning the preterist interpretation of the Scriptures, including Orthodox Preterism, Historic Preterism, Partial Preterism, Full Preterism, Covenant Eschatology, and the impact of these interpretations on and in our lives today.

To promote events, conferences, publications, media, and other material for the sake of advancing preterist interpretations and a deeper Scriptural understanding.
