First things first: no individual or entity profits from Polishing the Pulpit.

We only charge a tuition to cover the costs related to having the event such as the event space, speakers, and staffing. In fact, Polishing the Pulpit does not fully cover its cost, and the difference is made up through individual and congregational donations.

Children attend for free with parents or legal guardians such as grandparents. If your congregation wants to send a group of young people, the tuition is $100/teenager.

Times with no tuition fees:

  • Sunday Worship Services. Come and worship with over 4,000 Christians.
  • The last two days of PTP: Wednesday, and Thursday. As some travel home to teach mid-week Bible classes, rooms begin to have a few more empty seats. We would love for you to visit and spend two days with us. You need to register when you arrive, but this is just for us to contact you about future PTPs.
