Praedicō is a symposium that seeks to encourage engagement with Scripture and Society, enrich Biblical understanding, and equip the Church.

Praedicō offers a unique opportunity for those who regularly study the Bible to be drawn further into the Biblical world, to hear those God-breathed words afresh, and to wrestle with their implications. If you love the Scriptures, if you have a passion and calling to unpack the Bible within your community, we would love for you to be a part of this symposium.

The hope of this gathering is that the conversation fuels love for the Word, enables confident Biblical proclamation, and ultimately, enlivens the Church where you live.

Praedicō — to proclaim, to make known, to declare publicly, to commend and extol, to preach the gospel. It stems from two Latin words, 'prae', meaning 'before', and dicō, meaning 'devote'. The image evoked is of one who is consecrated to proclaim the message.
