From 2017-2022, Conferences on Sermon Studies were sponsored by Marshall's Center for Sermon Studies and Arete Event Services of Santa Rosa, CA. The Conferences were multidisciplinary and interfaith, bringing scholars and practitioners together to discuss sermon texts and the art of preaching from a variety of academic and religious perspectives.

Follow the links below for more information about each meeting. Starting in Summer 2023, the conferences will be sponsored by the new International Sermon Studies Association. Links will be provided as they become available.
