A Day of Preaching! April 1, 2023 at Belmont University

This is no April Fool’s Day joke! The Academy of Preachers which seeks to inspire young people in their call to gospel preaching will host a Day of Preaching at Belmont University on April 1, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

We’ve all been through a lot the last few years and we want to create a day of encouragement for young preachers aged 16-29 years old. Everyone preaches, everyone encourages, and everyone learns as young people share the gospel with their peers. 

Our Day of Preaching will have several important elements. There will be some key note preaching–experienced preachers sharing from their experiences, a panel discussion led by young preachers, and then young preachers preaching in small groups listening and encouraging each other. Each small group of preachers will have an experienced preacher listening and encouraging and offering feedback. There will also be three workshops from which young preachers may choose to learn more about preaching and to improve their skills. 

Through the generosity of Belmont’s Paschall Chair of Biblical Studies and Preaching there is no fee for the day. Morning snacks and a box lunch will be provided for each participant. Upon registration more information about preparing for the day will be shared. 

This is an opportunity for you to preach and to be encouraged! Registration closes on March 22 so register today!
