The Conference on Sermon Studies is sponsored by the Marshall University Center for Sermon Studies, with logistical and administrative support provided by Arete Event Services of Santa Rosa, CA. It is 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.

The conference takes place every year, with locations rotating among the United States, Canada, and the UK and continental Europe. Follow the links below for more information on the meetings held in 2017 (Huntington, WV) and 2018 (Montreal, Quebec).
