This year we will sink our hands into the soil of the earth and our lives.  As we highlight excellent preaching, hone our homiletic skills, and build community, we will excavate our life stories, those of the Bible, and those of the earth.  In addition to the workshops, meals, sermons, and worship we will be offering field trips to sacred sites and presenting our first ever preaching award.

Our Vision: We believe hundreds of Christian clergywomen in North Carolina are faithfully and creatively engaging in ministries where they proclaim the Word of God, week after week. In an ecumenical spirit of love and collegiality, we will lift up the voices of local clergywomen to encourage and inspire; share and learn; and to hone our craft. Together we will hear wonderful preaching from conference attendees and have time for group conversations on the art of proclamation in all its forms. We will pray, worship, and celebrate together.

We expect and hope to offer the festival in person, but will be open to pivoting to a hybrid or all-virtual conference depending on the current state of the ongoing pandemic.
