San Mateo GroupNow in its twelfth year, the Proclaimers PlaceĀ® seminar is recognized nationally as a venue for certification in biblical preaching and continuing education for pastors and proclaimers. Led by Joel C. Gregory, holder of the George W. Truett Endowed Chair at Baylor’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary, the small group seminar considers one text per day. In the morning Joel leads the group in a close reading of the text from exegetical resources and in the afternoon the seminar considers ways of shaping the text into a biblical sermon. In addition, recorded sermons of noted preachers and live Skype interviews may also enrich the experience.

Across the days of the seminar the full range of contemporary homiletic issues find expression in question and answer through informal discussion with Joel.

The seminar has been conducted in 17 states, for twelve years at Oxford University and recently in Paris, Rome, Athens, Wittenberg and Galilee in the summer sessions. The seminar is usually hosted by a pastor or denominational leader who convenes interested proclaimers.

The tuition for the seminar is $1000 for four days. Thanks to the generosity of the Eula Mae and John Baugh Foundation, there is now available a 50% scholarship for the seminars. You may register here for your choice of the future available seminars.

How do I apply for a scholarship?

Your payment of $500 qualifies you for the scholarship and it will be applied. Tuition is non-refundable but may be transferred to another Proclaimers Place SeminarĀ® nationally or internationally with notification.
