Mark your calendar and plan to join us October 15-16, 2020 for the 9th annual Homegrown: NC Women’s Preaching Festival.
We are honored to present Donyelle McCray as our keynote speaker this year. McCray is currently working on a book about Pauli Murray, and will offer two sessions illustrating her relevance to our struggles today. This year’s preachers and presenters also include Chelsea Yarborough, Karen Ziegler, Deborah Williams, Grace Hackney, Maddy Reyes, Angie Hong, Nicole Williams, and more to be announced! Check out the full schedule here!
Our Vision: We believe hundreds of 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 casual group conversations on the art of proclamation in all its forms. We will pray, worship, and celebrate together.
In addition to an incredible line-up of presenters, we are excited about the gifts and wisdom, joys and challenges that each of you bring to this festival every year. In addition to the workshops and worship, we will offer several opportunities for being in communion with each other. Learning in community for two days, even virtually, is the heart of who we are. We hope you will plan to join us!
