This year’s sermon slam takes place at the ULS campus in Gettysburg, PA. Yes, it’s a trek, but the skill, suspense, and student fellowship are well worth it! After all, it’s the famous Gettysburg, and a visit to the seminary (where the historic battle began!) is a unique opportunity. Carpools will be arranged, and a pre-event tour of the Seminary Ridge Museum (on campus) and the battlefield will be possible for those who RSVP.
Each year, the sermon slam features 7-9 gifted preachers from the various Consortium schools. The evening includes brief, prepared homilies, plus a “lightning round” where preachers speak impromptu. On display are distinct church traditions of preaching, distinct personal styles, and insightful exegeses. Come learn about different preaching traditions and styles, and enjoy the food, drink, and community.
