Founded in 1987, the EPF is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve, support, and enhance preaching in the Episcopal Church. Since 1989, over 1,800 hand-picked seminarians have passed through the Preaching Excellence Program, including several bishops and one Presiding Bishop. More recently, the EPF has expanded programming to embrace practicing parish clergy through the annual conference (“PEP-II”) and ad hoc diocesan conferences.
The Foundation’s programs are financed entirely by annual contributions from parishes, bishops, Episcopal seminarians, and charitable foundations. The EPF has accumulated an endowment with net assets of over $2 million.
The mission of the Episcopal Preaching Foundation is to improve, support, and enhance the level of preaching in the Episcopal Church. To this end, the EPF organizes and underwrites national and regional preaching programs addressing the needs of seminarians and recently ordained parish clergy. Episcopal Preaching Foundation is a registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
