Call for Papers


Each year the Evangelical Homiletics Society hosts its Annual International Scholars Conference. A key feature of the conference are the papers that members prepare and then present to their peers. This is the heartbeat of our scholarly society as members gather to engage with the ideas presented in the papers. There we’re able to encourage, query, and critique each other’s scholarship. Professors of preaching and other scholars lay out their ideas that have an impact on the classroom and their potential publications.

This is a call for papers for the upcoming conference that will take place 13-15 October 2022 at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. The theme for our gathering is “Engaging a World Homiletic.” Your paper proposal may focus on the conference theme or another area of homiletical research. All proposals are evaluated by a blind jury of EHS members for possible presentation at the conference.

Please note: authors of papers selected for presentation at the Annual International Scholars Conference will also be required to provide a five-minute introductory/overview video that’ll be posted on the website with the completed paper prior to the conference. More details on the content of the video will be provided once selections have been made.

To propose a paper at the Annual International Scholars Conference, please go to to access a Google form. (Please note, you must be a member of EHS to submit a proposal.) 

The deadline for submitting proposals is May 15, 2022. You will be notified by June 30, 2022, if your paper has been selected for presentation. If the proposal is selected, you will need to submit the completed paper and video by September 1, 2022.

Let me encourage all EHS members to consider submitting a paper proposal and also to plan to join us in person at Moody in Chicago!
