Save the date! Homegrown 2019 will take place October 3-4, 2019, at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church in Durham, NC. More details TBA in the coming months!
Registration Coming June 25! Early bird cost $50 through August 30, Student rate $10.
It’s time to make plans to join us from 1:00 pm October 25 – 4:00 pm October 26 at Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church in Durham, NC. Click HERE for the preliminary schedule.
From an opening reception, to vibrant worship, to insightful workshops, to intentional conversations we will live into our theme “Her Voice Through the Generations” as we honor the voices of the generations of women that began at the empty tomb and continue through today.
Our featured preachers and presenters include people like Rev. Yvonne Delk, the first African-American woman ordained in the United Church of Christ, and Rev. Jerusha Neal, Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Duke Divinity School. These women and others will be highlighted here in the weeks to come.
While we aren’t really about big names, fancy titles, or “experts,” we are about academic study, the creative arts, diversity, intentional relationships, and preaching. Mostly, we are about YOU! The gifts and wisdom, joys and challenges, you bring to this festive learning community for two days are the heart of who we are. We hope you will plan to join us!
The survey will take less than ten minutes to complete and is completely anonymous. Click HERE to complete the survey.
