The UE Midwest Campus Festival of Young Preachers is an annual event sponsored by the Neu Chapel Society at the University of Evansville, endorsed by the Academy of Preachers, and modeled after the national Festival of Young Preachers.

The Academy of Preachers seeks to Identify, Network, Support and Inspire young people in their call to Gospel preaching. Since its launch in 2009, this ecumenical organization has worked with more than 300 young people from across the nation. The Academy of Preachers is energized by the conviction that Gospel preaching is a vocation of public and social significance, a calling worthy of our very best and brightest young people.

Our Campus Festivals enable us to promote the vocation of preaching among our current students, stay in touch with recent graduates, and build important relationships with prospective students. It also helps prepare young preachers as they seek to live out their call to ministry, possibly ordained ministry.

The Neu Chapel Society exists to support religious life at UE and is an integral part of Neu Chapel ministries.

For more information, please contact University Chaplain, Rev. Dr. Tamara K. Gieselman, tg85@evansville.edu.
