What's the Festival Like?
The Festival of Homiletics is like summer camp for preachers.
During the Festival, you’ll hear from outstanding preachers from diverse backgrounds, traditions, and ministry settings. You’ll participate in passionate worship, dive deep with preaching master classes, and fellowship with preaching colleagues from around the world.
This year, in-person attendance is capped at 1,200 to maintain rigorous safety protocols—but even if you can’t join us in person, you can still participate!
Choose from a free or premium version of the online Festival—or better yet, come to Minneapolis for a celebration of preaching you won’t forget.
