The Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching
June 11 – 16, 2017
Princeton Theological Seminary is pleased to announce the Fifteenth Annual Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching for preachers in their first two to eight 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 a 2017 Engle Fellow if you want to reconnect vocationally with peers and practice the craft of preaching in the company of colleagues.
Because of the generosity of Joe R. Engle, the fee for the Engle Institute is $150, inclusive of lodging and meals.
Apply to be an Engle Fellow if:
- You are a seminary graduate (M.Div.) who has been preaching weekly for two to 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.
The online application and details be available by December 1, 2016.
