2017 Sylvanus Carter Homiletics Award
Each participant in the Sylvanus Carter Homiletics Award competition researches, writes and submits the manuscript of a sermon that he/she has prepared. Selected participants deliver their sermons to an audience. Each sermon is rated on exegesis of scripture, focus and relevance for the audience who will hear it, as well as the participant's delivery of it. Three finalists are chosen to receive scholarships, and one of those is designated as recipient of the award.
