Outstanding Preachers 2017

Outstanding Preacher Series: With God as Our Witness

Every July, Foundry hosts its annual Outstanding Preacher Series. Dur­ing this series five gifted guest preachers come to share the word of God with the congregation and community.

Our 2017 Outstanding Preacher Series brings a wide variety of voices to the Foundry pulpit to challenge, encourage, and inspire our ongoing witness. This year’s guest preachers will help us reflect on what it means to live “with God as our witness” in what is sure to be a strong culmination of this year’s guiding theme “Next: Witness”.
