Word Incarnate: Transforming Our World through Preaching

The Lecture Series, "Word Incarnate: Preaching to Create New Realities," is an inspiring event that will bring together leaders from all levels of theological education, from local churches to universities and educational organizations, to open conversations that will help us face together the challenges facing our communities today.

In a world full of uncertainty and constant change, it is necessary to stop, reflect and chart a clear path towards a more hopeful future. Therefore, we invite you to join this unique experience, where you will be able to share your knowledge, concerns and hopes with theological leaders and educators from different fields and cultures.

During this two-day gathering, you will have the opportunity to listen to outstanding speakers, participate in enriching workshops and panels, and connect with people who, like you, seek to create new realities through preaching. Together, we can engage in a constructive dialogue that allows us to analyze and understand the needs of our churches and communities in order to develop leaders who can guide society toward a more promising future.

This Lecture Series, "Word Incarnate: Preaching to Create New Realities," is a call to action, an invitation to join together in the search for a common purpose and a space in which we can find inspiration and strength to bring the message of love, understanding and justice to every corner of our society.

Don't miss this incredible opportunity to be part of the change, to learn and grow with other leaders who, like you, want to leave a significant footprint in the world.

We look forward to seeing you in Evanston, Illinois, on October 13-14, 2023, to embody the Word together and create new realities through preaching!
