The Academy of Preachers is hosting the 2013 National Festival of Young Preachers January 2-5 in Atlanta, GA. The theme for the festival, now in it's fourth year, is "Gospel in the City."
By encouraging time for conversations with peers from various faith backgrounds, giving young preachers time to preach and receive valuable feedback from mentors, and providing tremendous networking opportunities, the AoP is helping young preachers build a solid foundation that will benefit them in inestimable ways. The age range for those wishing to participate is 14-28, however, all are welcome to attend and lend their support to the young preachers and participate in worship.
