* Nick Joyner and Tyler Best

Senior religion/psychology major Nick Joyner and freshman religion major Tyler Best will be preaching at the National Festival of Young Preachers in Louisville, Ky., January 2-5. More than 120 Young Preachers from more than 25 states are currently registered to attend the event which will be held at the historic Seelbach Hilton hotel and the Cathedral of the Assumption in downtown Louisville.

The National Festival of Young Preachers sponsored by the Academy of Preachers is the most ecumenical preaching event in the country. A broad range of denominations will again be represented in the young preachers who are registered this year including, but not limited to, Ethiopian Orthodox, United Methodist, Assembly of God, Lutheran, Baptist, Presbyterian, and United Church of Christ. The Festival is designed specifically for young preachers between the ages of 16 and 28 who aspire to be preachers of the gospel.

The Academy of Preachers is an ecumenical initiative launched in 2009 through a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment and energized by the conviction that preaching is a vocation of public and social significance, a calling worthy of our very best and brightest young people. The Academy of Preachers is a trans-denominational organization whose mission is to Identify, Network, Inspire and Support young people who sense God’s leading into a vocation of enormous social significance—gospel preaching. For more information go to:

University Chaplain Tamara Gieselman has been invited to serve as a member of the Board of Advisors to the Academy of Preachers. Gieselman has been involved with the Academy and the National Festival since 2009 and will be attending the National Festival in January, serving as a sermon evaluator and preaching mentor/coach to UE students Nick Joyner and Tyler Best.
