Conferences

The Marten Program sponsors a preaching conference every other summer, inviting leaders in the field of homiletics to share their insights with preachers in the field. These are extended moments for busy preachers to come away from their routine to the peace-filled campus at Notre Dame. Revel in the sunset over St. Mary's Lake. Wake up to the calling of birds. Most of all, enjoy the camaraderie of others who are passionate about sharing the Gospel. 

Our most recent conference was held June 24-26, 2019. The theme was "Mystic and Mystagogue: Preaching as Spiritual Leadership." More than 250 preachers gathered for lively conversation and mutual enrichment!

The topic for the 2021 conference will be enriching the scriptural imagination for preaching. That conference will be held June 21-23, 2021 in the brand new Notre Dame Conference Center. Please mark your calendar and stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
