The Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching
June 12 – 17, 2016
Princeton Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the Fourteenth Annual Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching for preachers in their first three to seven years of ministry.
About the Engle Institute
The Engle Institute is a weeklong continuing education event that was envisioned and made possible by the dream and generosity of Joe R. Engle, a member of the First Presbyterian Church in New York City. The institute is designed to nurture and strengthen the craft of those who preach, ideally weekly, whether in city, suburb, small town, rural community, or other specialized ministries.
Engle Fellows and faculty gather for the week to participate together in the hospitality of the seminar room, the dinner table, and the chapel pew. Through hands-on workshops, seminars, tutorials, and conversations, Engle Fellows are supported and challenged to seek excellence in their preaching vocations.
Apply to be an Engle Fellow if:
- you are a seminary graduate (M.Div.) who has been preaching weekly for two through eight years
- you wish to nurture and strengthen your preaching vocation
- you currently serve in a ministry context that requires regular preaching/worship responsibilities, or you plan to seek a call in such a context
- you are able to attend the entire week of the Engle Institute, from Sunday late afternoon through Friday lunch.
