Festival of Homiletics 2020 Recording Package

The 2020 on-demand recording package contains all of the sermons, lectures and interviews from the virtual Festival, plus bonus material from our presenters in video and audio form. It does not include full worship services or music concerts. We are using Abila Freestone LMS to archive all of the festival recordings. The streaming program and the on-demand storage were on two different platforms so we thank you for your patience as we could only get one set up in the short transition time from in-person to virtual conference.

The offerings of the 2020 free virtual conference were only available at their presentation time during the week of May 18-22, 2020. However; if you wish to order the 2020 on-demand recording package or to purchase a presentation from a past Festival, you can purchase the  on-demand package here

Did you order a 2020 on-demand package and do not have access?

The recording package for the 2020 Festival of Homiletics became available June 1. If you registered for the upgrade, Abila Freestone created an account in your name and sent an email that included access directions to the email address used in your registration. All accounts have been set-up, to date, if you have difficulty finding the confirmation email, try these directions:

  1. Go to the festival web page. (Sign-In located in the tab bar on the right hand side).
  2. Enter the email address that this correspondence was sent to. If you are a new user, a temporary password was created to set up your account – impact. Please change this password before you logout. If you already have an existing account because you ordered recordings from the festival in the past, please enter the email address and previous password to access your account.
  3. Click on the title 2020 Festival of Homiletics.
  4. Click on the individual session you wish to view.

To honor our presenter contracts, you will have access to the 2020 video recordings for one year: after May 31, 2021 your account will revert to audio-only access. You will not be able to download any of the video sessions; rather, you will only be able to watch them while logged into your account. You will be able to download the audio MP3 files and play them on a variety of devices. Your on-demand sessions will become available by June 1, 2020.

The on-demand content purchased by a church leader may be shared with a small group (less than 25) in your congregation or care for educational purposes. Please note that the on-demand video content is only available by streaming. You will not be able to download it to another form, and it is only licensed through May 31, 2021. Downloading the MP3 files is allowed, but copying and sharing those files is not allowed

If you need further assistance with your on-demand account, please contact Abila Freestone via their support system at freestonelearnersupport@communitybrands.com or call Toll Free at 1-866.702-3278 and a representative will be happy to assist you.
