Kerusso Experience



KERUSSO IN QUARANTINE . . . Kerusso students and friends, because of the uncertainty surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will not host an in-person Kerusso Experience in 2020. However, we want to help you continue to grow in your ministry. From June 8 through July 29 we will be posting two short videos each week plus bonus materials on all of our social media accounts. The videos will feature Kerusso counselors and Harding University professors and will offer insights on sermon development and delivery of the text from Philippians. 

Kerusso is typically a week-long preacher training camp for ninth to twelfth 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 eighth annual Kerusso Experience (in quarantine) is set for June 8 - July 29, 2020. This year's theme is "The Mind of Christ: Preaching Philippians." 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 1ST.

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 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year, there is no charge. Applications and contact information are all available on this page. Also, be sure to look up last 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 seek to raise up a new generation of kingdom servants.
