What's the Festival Like?

Join us in Pittsburgh for the best preaching event of the year!

Karoline Lewis says, “I don’t think there’s any place else where you are gathering for worship so frequently and hearing good sermons and good preaching and wonderful worship.

“You’re being fed. You’re being nurtured. You’re being sustained. You leave with the sense of being empowered once again, reminded of the way in which the Holy Spirit works and is present in your ministry—feeling that spirit once again in your ministry and in your preaching.”
