Derby Youth Mayor in Preaching Competition

Christian Resources Exhibition searches for gifting

A young politician from Derby has become a finalist in a national preaching competition.

The Christian Resources Exhibition, which next sets up in London this May, has launched the new Sermon of the Year event to ‘unearth preachers of today and tomorrow’, in conjunction with the London School of Theology (LST) and Preach Magazine.

Phil Hutchinson was elected youth mayor for Derby last July, and is amongst four finalists in two age groups in the competition. Last year, Phil (who up to the age of 10 grew up in China and Hong Kong) initiated a week of mission with the Message Trust in Derby.

These four, plus other runners up will have their sermons printed in a book, Reason for Hope: The Top 10 Sermons from Sermon of the Year 2016, which will be available at the event or from from May.

The CRE International will be held at the ExCeL, London, 17th-20th May. Find out more at
