Kerusso Experience

  • This is the Kerusso logo for 2021.


Kerusso students and friends - Harding University and the Kerusso Experience team will continually monitor and follow state mandates regarding COVID-19.  It may be that we need to cancel last minute and if that happens, any fees paid will be returned.


Kerusso is typically a week-long preacher training camp for 9th-12th grade boys. Students spend the week on Harding's campus learning Bible study methods and sermon preparation and delivery from faculty, students, and friends. More importantly, perhaps, is that they learn that they, too, can serve the LORD in a lifetime of ministry.

The ninth annual Kerusso Experience is set for July 3 - July 10, 2021. This year's theme is "Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly - Amos, Hosea, and Micah" In addition to the textual study, beginning, intermediate and advanced classes in preaching will be offered. Even if your student attended in previous years he will find new information and insights this year. APPLICATION DEADLINE FOR KERUSSO IS JUNE 19th, 2021.

Please prayerfully consider any young men from your congregation whom you feel may benefit from this type of instruction and inspiration, and offer to connect them to Kerusso. The usual fee is $200. Applications and contact information are all available on this page. Also, be sure to look up previous year's Kerusso Experience on Facebook to see pictures and videos from the week. Feel free to call or e-mail any of us with any questions that you might have, and to pass on this information to any who might be interested.

We seek nothing more than to serve the LORD and his church through this endeavor. We solicit your prayers and your partnership as we aspire to raise up a new generation of kingdom servants.
