What is the Engle Institute?

The Engle Institute is a weeklong continuing education event designed to nurture and strengthen the craft of those who preach in city or suburb, small town, rural community, or other specialized ministries.

Engle Fellows and faculty participate together in the hospitality of the seminar room, the dinner table, and the chapel pew. Through hands-on workshops, seminars, tutorials, and conversations, Engle fellows are supported and challenged to seek excellence in their preaching vocations.

The Institute is made possible by the dream and generosity of Joe R. Engle, who was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in New York City.

How can you become an Engle Fellow?

Apply to be a 2022 Engle Fellow if you want to practice the craft of preaching in the company of colleagues. Applicants who have been preaching regularly for two to 10 years and have never attended the Engle Institute will be considered.
