Admission to Preaching Festival is free… go figure

Baylor University is hosting a “Preaching Festival”.

It’s for “people who don’t want to wait until Sunday for a sermon”.

And it’s free.

I think they have the bases covered.

Here’s more from the press release that is trying to entice us all to attend:

Many aspiring pastors have only a limited number of opportunities to preach as they prepare for their ministries, said Kessa Payne, administrative associate with The Kyle Lake Center for Effective Preaching at Truett.

“This gives them a chance to do so,” she said. “Some of these students have never preached a sermon in their lives.”

Sermons will last about 15 minutes each, she said. The Truett students will preach in front of professors and local pastors as well as others who wish to attend.

Sounds like fun.

OK, not.

But it might be interesting, after all… and some great experience for the ‘preachers of tomorrow’.

If anyone decides to go, let me know how it was.  🙂

    A preacher limited to 15 minutes? I would like to see if that could be done.
