The Academy of Preachers

The Academy of Preachers seeks to Identify, Network, Support and Inspire young people in their call to preaching. Since its launch in 2009, this ecumenical organization has worked with more than 1000 young people from across the nation. 


Our local chapter of the Academy of Preachers brings high school students, college students, and young adults together to discover and hone the craft of preaching. This year, the local chapter is focusing on “Telling the Story.” Storytelling is a vehicle for sharing the gospel. Our local chapter wants to learn and grow in effectively sharing the story and ultimately shaping the world. 


Our Academy of Preachers local chapter is a joint effort of the North Texas Conference, Perkins School of Theology, and Southern Methodist University.
