We strive to accommodate all who wish to attend the Festival of Homiletics and work hard to minimize any inconveniences. Each year the festival takes place in an urban setting, at multiple venues with differing accommodations.


For in-person events, all venues have elevators, an accessible entrance and restrooms, and there will be reserved seating for those needing accommodations.

Meals are not provided as part of the conference.

Hearing Assistance and Sign Language

We plan to offer closed captioning for all of our videos being shown online when possible. For the in-person event we will have a limited number of hearing assistance devices at all of the venues. American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter services are also available upon request.

Please contact us by email or phone no later than February to request ASL interpreter services or other accommodations for special needs for the in-person event.
