The Episcopal Preaching Foundation
Forming Powerful Preachers
Why Is Preaching Important in the Episcopal Church?
Preaching Is the #1 Reason Given for Choosing a House of Worship
Compelling preachers proclaim Good News that stirs the imagination, transforms the heart, and makes way for changed lives in action in the world. Sermons are cited by three out of four worshippers as the major factor in attracting them to religious services, according to a recent Gallup poll. People place a high value on pulpit messages that teach about scripture, and they long for a connection between faith and their daily lives.
One Mission. Many Voices.
The mission of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation is to inspire, form, and equip preachers to propel people on journeys of faith through dynamic preaching in the Episcopal Church.
