The goal of this preaching group is for students to learn from each other and to think about the process of preaching outside an academic context. It is challenging to get into the intro preaching class, and there are not many preaching opportunities for students who are not third-year MDivs, so this group aims to fill the gap by expanding preaching opportunities and opportunities to talk about preaching at Yale. YDS has a rich abundance of individuals passionate about preaching the Word from a wide array of different Christian traditions, and this groups taps into that by providing a space for preachers to collaborate. The primary event of this group during the 2020-2021 season has been our Word at Nine podcast, which provides YDS students with opportunities to preach a sermon on an episode of the show. The previous year, the group primarily consisted of an event called Preacher’s Hour, which is essentially office hours with fellow students to talk about preaching, either through workshopping sermons that people are currently working on or through discussing topics relevant to preaching in general. Preacher’s Hour has been on pause during the pandemic, but may resume in the future.
