2014 National Festival of Young Preachers
The 2014 National Festival of Young Preachers was held January 2-4, 2014, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
The National Festival convened in the Sheraton City Centre Hotel, 31 W Ohio St., Indianapolis, IN 46204, with some events, including the opening worship service on Thursday and the closing event–PREACHAPALOOZA– held across the street at Christ Church Cathedral.
One hundred seventeen Young Preachers gathered to preach, including 80 who had never been to an AoP Festival before.
Total attendance exceeded 300 even though the Festival was cut short by the worst snow storm in many years. Most got out of Indianapolis early but a few, waiting for airplane flights, were trapped in the city for several days.
Nevertheless, it was a grand affair, and everyone left the city inspired and connected to a new network of friends and preaching colleagues.
All sermon videos (including the plenary services) are now posted to the AoP channel on YouTube. The 2014 book of sermons is now being edited for publication.
We thank the Sheraton Hotel of Indianapolis, Christ Church Cathedral, and Christian Theological Seminary (our lead sponsor) for a wonderful festival. Glory to God.
