C.J. Childs, a student at Trevecca Nazarene University, preaches at the Academy of Preachers.

Trevecca student C. J. Childs spoke at the Festival of Young Preachers January 8-9, 2010, and was featured in several news stories which covered the event.

The event was hosted by the Academy of Preachers, an organization established last year by Rev. Dwight Moody which hopes to help provide opportunities for young adult preachers of all denominations.


During the event, which was held in Louisville, Kentucky, 100 passionate believers from schools, seminaries and churches around the nation 12-minute turns giving sermons. Each was provided a mentor to coach them in homiletics and the craft of writing and delivering.
