Kerusso Experience

  • kerusso-website-graphics.png



Kerusso is a week-long preacher training camp for 9th-12th grade young men. 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 eleventh annual Kerusso Experience is June 29 - July 6, 2024. This year's theme is "Faith that Works," Preaching through James. In addition to the textual study, beginning, intermediate and advanced classes in preaching will be offered. Each year students will glean new information and insights. The application deadline for Kerusso 2024 is June 17, 2024 or when capacity is reached.

**Please note: Kerusso will be capped at a maximum of 30 students for 2024. Please register early. 

COST: $300

We never want cost to be a factor to attend Kerusso. Scholarships are available.

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.
