The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection

Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, KS is hosting the Young Preachers Festival to share a great vision of raising up and equipping the next generation of leaders for The United Methodist Church and want to partner in this endeavor. The Festival is designed to:
  • foster a call to ministry
  • provide networking and support to those discerning and pursuing a call to ministry
  • provide practical tools and training in sermon preparation and presentation
  • provide guidance to hone these skills through the opportunity to give a sermon and receive feedback

Featured Speakers for the Festival include several leading preachers from the denomination, including  Adam Hamilton, Sarah Heath, Kevin Murriel, Jerusha Neal, Charley Reeb, and Scott Chrostek. 

As a unique opportunity for 2018, the Festival will be held concurrently with the South Central Jurisdiction Bishops’ Week, providing a great opportunity for participants to meet and interact with several active bishops. The Opening Session of the Festival will feature a greeting from the Bishops and a presentation on Excellence in Wesleyan Preaching. Opportunity to continue the conversation follows the Opening Session at a lunch with the Bishops, which is sure to enrich the Festival participants’ experience.
