Residential Seminarians and Non-residential Formation Learners

Since our founding in 1987, the Episcopal Preaching Foundation has gathered seminarians from around the Church for a weeklong residential experience to be mentored, celebrated, and formed as preachers by the most gifted theologians and preachers in the Church.   The Preaching Excellence Program (PEP) has expanded to invite participants from many seminary communities and virtual communities of learning (Iona Collaborative).

Whether newly ordained (1-5 years), a Preaching Excellence Program alum, a member of the clergy in a diocese partnering with the Preaching Foundation or a deacon attending an in-person or virtual conference, the Preaching Foundation model for formation in preaching is impactful.
