About this Event: This year's theme is “Crossing Boundaries Toward Healing.”

In a world that is polarized and deeply divided, the work of crossing boundaries for the sake of healing is crucial. This year's Rethinking Preaching Conference (RPC) invites participants to consider the challenges and opportunities posed by issues such as religious difference, mental health, queer identity, race, ethnicity, culture, ability, accessibility, online technology, and multi-language contexts and their intersectional natures. The sessions will help us explore what it means to be a preacher for today. The Centre for Religion and Its Contexts and Shining Waters Regional Council (UCC) invite seasoned and new preachers, students of homiletics and participants who seek to “rethink preaching” to join our conference in 2024.

Keynote speaker: Rev. Dr. Debra Mumford.

Invited preacher: Rev. Dr. Cheri DiNovo.

Workshop Leaders: Rev. Kimiko KarpoffRev. Dr. Namjoong Kim, Rev. Dr. Jake Myers and Rev. Evan Swance-Smith.
