College of Theology and Christian Ministry Hosts Regional Festival for Academy of Preachers
Belmont’s College of Theology and Christian Ministry hosted a Regional Festival for the Academy of Preachers on campus Oct. 24-25.
The Academy of Preachers is an organization that seeks to inspire young adults ages 14-28 to explore their call to gospel preaching. The Academy hosts three regional festivals throughout the country and one national festival each year. Among the young preachers were Belmont alumni Larry Terrell Crudup (’10) and Sarah Garrett (’13) and current students Julia Crone and Brooke Pernice.
All four Belmont students and alumni will likely participate in the national festival in Dallas in January. In addition, the young preachers participated in peer group conversations about preaching and listened to sermons from Dean Darrell Gwaltney, as well as professors from Sewanee: The University of the South, Trevecca Nazarene University and Vanderbilt Divinity School.
