From this page, you can make a contribution to the Orthodox participants of the Festival of Young Preachers, sponsored by the Academy of Preachers, a national partner of the Preachers Institute.
Thank you for helping!
The Festival is an annual opportunity for young Christian preachers, aged 16-28, to come together, flex their intellects, share and sharpen skills in proclaiming Christ crucified and risen. Last year, which was the first year of the festival, there was one Orthodox participant. The rich tradition of young Orthodox Christian Oratorical Festivals in the Orthodox Christian Church should provide an excellent parallel and opportunity for young Orthodox preachers. Some of the most gifted and intelligent speakers in the Orthodox Church participate in Oratorical festivals all over the the United States.
This will be an excellent opportunity for them to sharpen their skills in preaching and presentation of the Gospel, and to make Orthodox Christianity more visible, no longer relegated to the pious past of old world antiquity, and no longer escaping detection among American Christians.
Meet our 2011 Young Preachers HERE.
Please pray for our young preachers as they complete their preparations to attend the Festival!
