We are pleased and excited to invite you to the upcoming conference of Societas Homiletica in Budapest, 7-12 August 2020. The centuries long history of the Faculty of Theology at the Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary combined with the rich culture of Budapest will surely deliver a most memorable experience to all participants from around the globe.

Standing united in the faith of the one risen Christ, we firmly believe that the diverse community of Societas Homiletica has much to offer both spiritually and professionally by bringing together the creative minds and souls of the homiletical world. The Budapest conference of 2020 wishes to remain true to this calling and hopes to help participants further enhance in their research and pedagogical practice.

Our long term vision is to expand the accessibility of this well functioning academic community and to even open up membership to many more. We therefore warmly invite everyone, newcomers and regular past participants alike to the upcoming conference of Societas Homiletica.

We hope to see you soon!

May the peace of Christ be with you.
