2018 Festival of Homiletics - Washington, DC

"Preaching and Politics"


Festival of Homiletics Registration Opens Nov. 3

Make plans today to join us May 11-15 for the 2015 Festival of Homiletics in downtown Denver.

Praised by the New York Times as being at the center of “a world of preaching stars,” the Festival annually draws 1,800 preaching colleagues together for an amazing week of preaching, lectures, worship and renewal.

This year’s theme is "Preaching from the Mountain: Heralds of Good Tidings," and it marks the first time in 20 years the festival will be held west of the Mississippi.
