Funding Your Festival
The Academy of Preachers encourages all Young Preachers participating in the 2013 National Festival of Young Preachers to ask their Sponsoring Church or Institution to provide financial assistance to offset the cost of the event. A Sponsoring Church or Institution may be willing to pay a portion or all of your costs. You may also choose to ask friends and family to support you financially as you prepare to attend the National Festival. Let them know of your passion for preaching and your intent to attend the 2013 National Festival through phone calls, letters, and updates on Facebook or other social media sites.
Some scholarship funds have been donated to the Academy of Preachers to support Young Preachers who demonstrate a significant financial need and who cannot secure the financial support of their Sponsoring Church or Institution. These scholarships provide up to $300 of the accommodation cost of the National Festival; applicants must first register, pay the $50 Festival deposit, then apply for the scholarship. The Scholarship Form is available for download here.
Please complete this form and return to the Academy of Preachers at email@example.com no later than November 1, 2012.
