Mark your calendars for the 2023 Festival of Homiletics. From their website:
The Festival of Homiletics is a week-long conference designed to inspire discourse about preaching, worship, and society. Our mission is to provide the opportunity for theological reflection on the practices of preaching and worship, especially as congregations navigate being church in the 21st century. Between 1,500 and 1,800 preachers, pastors, and lay people from all 50 states and 20+ countries attend the conference each year, around 50% being returning participants. The Festival of Homiletics is a week of refreshment, renewal, and inspiration for all who attend.
Each year we invite approximately twenty-five outstanding preachers and professors of homiletics from diverse backgrounds, traditions, and ministry settings to engage the complexities of today’s culture through the wideness of God’s grace and varied presence as revealed to us through the witness of Scripture and the person of Jesus Christ. When selecting presenters, the Festival of Homiletics is committed to offering a diverse slate of voices depending on the chosen theme, participant evaluations from previous years, financial stewardship, and speaker availability.
