Young Preacher is one of three membership categories of the Academy of Preachers, the others being Ministry Professional and iPartner.
Any Young Preacher between the age of 14 and 35 may join the Academy of Preachers and participate in any AoP event. The Young Preachers pictured above are reading the Covenant of Gospel Preaching during the 2015 National Festival of Young Preachers in Dallas.
The annual dues for each Young Preacher is $25. The AoP membership year is January to December. Beginning in Fall 2015, all those who preach in an AoP Regional or National Festival will pay annual dues at the time of (online) Festival registration unless paid earlier in the membership year. All those who are registered to preach at an AoP Festival are full members for that year.
An AoP lapel pin will be mailed as a welcome gift to first time members who join without Festival registration. Those who join as part of Festival registration will receive their lapel pins at the Festival.
