Call for Papers

2018 Conference Call for Papers

October 11-13, 2018  – New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

Paper Proposal Submission Deadline: May 15, 2017

At the heart of the mission of the Evangelical Homiletics Society is the presentation of papers demonstrating research on current issues and items of interest. The quality and stimulation provided by these papers is a significant contribution to the work of EHS.

This is the initial call for paper proposals for our October gathering, hosted by New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. The theme is “Effective Preaching in the 21st Century.” Your paper proposal may focus on the conference theme or consider another issue. All proposals are considered blindly by a jury of EHS members for possible presentation at the conference. Download the information: pdf | rtf.

To propose a paper at the annual conference, please complete this form and submit it to Vice-President Michael Duduit at by May 15, 2018. You will be notified about June 1 if your paper has been selected for presentation. If the proposal is selected, you will need to submit the complete final paper by August 15, 2018. Papers not selected for presentation may be submitted for possible publication on the EHS website. 

Make your plans now to join us for this special celebration as we enjoy one of the nation’s most fascinating cities and the beautiful campus of New Orleans Baptist Seminary. Even better, give some reflective thought about offering to contribute to our guild by proposing a paper of interest and insight for your fellow homileticians.

Michael Duduit
Vice-President (2017-2018)
