Don’t miss some of the most exciting preaching and teaching in North America

Two and a half days of keynotes, workshops, private and public preaching events, networking, and fellowship. Interactive lectures and workshops focussed on the topic of preaching bring almost everyone to the table – Baptist, United, Roman Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, Evangelical and ten seminaries – so much to learn from each other and such a great spirit. An amazing education event for clergy and all who value quality preaching, and so much more – not to be missed.

NEW THIS YEAR – Fine-Tuned Preaching
Based on your feedback, we’ve added a master class course to our LRPF schedule. Fine-Tuned Preaching is an exciting opportunity for fifteen preachers to fine-tune their preaching with peers and preaching experts. Preachers do not often have a chance to attend a course that offers a safe and encouraging environment in which to preach, get feedback, and to set goals for personal preaching growth.

Over two days, you will participate in individual and group led workshops, that will give a background to elements of preaching excellence, no matter what sermon form is used:

• Monday, October 23 11:00am Workshop Session One
The Rev. Dr. Paul Scott Wilson “The Preaching Scene Today”
