At the GREAT AMEN of the 2016 National Festival of Young Preachers, with Dr. Marvin McMickle preaching in the Historic Pleasant Green Missionary Baptist Church of Lexington, Kentucky, these 69 Young Preachers were formally and publically inducted into the Academy of Preachers (being the first time they had preached in a National Festival). They join 512 other Young Preachers who have preached at the first six National Festivals to consecrate themselves to the preaching life via the COVENANT OF GOSPEL PREACHING.
