2016 Keynote Speakers
What people had to say about Lectureship 2015
The theme was by far the best I have ever been involved with. I loved the variety of topics. I took notes
as fast as I could because this stuff will preach!
Benson Auditorium was full and running over at every lecture this year. People are coming to the
Harding Bible Lectureship because they have confidence in Harding's leadership. I think Harding is
the best Christian university in the country.
I like having the lectureship in the fall to allow student participation. It allows for a vibrancy to the
event that is missing from others I have attended.
Harding sets the standard for Bible Lectureships. I get the most information in the least amount of time.
It was my first time to visit. I saw it online... we had family that went to Harding but had never
been there. I thought it would be a positive experience- and it was! I plan on attending again.
I've been attending Harding lectureship for about 15 years. I think Harding remains biblically solid and
can be trusted to present thought-provoking lessons that aren't riddled with agendizing.
I believe that the lectureship represents a good balance of scholarship and perspectives within Churches
of Christ. It's not radical in either direction. I don't feel like the speakers are promoting any kind of agenda.
The Evening Keynote speakers were outstanding. Bruce McLarty was the best of the best. Overall I had
a marvelous experience at this year's lectureship.
Daughter started her freshmen year at Harding and I have been wanting to check it out for quite some time.
It turned into a GREAT spiritual retreat for my wife and I which I would love to repeat again in 2016.
I believe the theme and the keynotes were quite possibly the best I have heard. Also, Dale Jenkins did
an outstanding job with his remarks during the Celebration of Ministry dinner.
Harding is special to us, and we make it part of our annual schedule to attend. The lectureship gives us
renewed strength as we continue to minister to the church at home or wherever we go.
We both LOVE Harding and the people there. We come back to catch us with old friends, learn under
the feet of some excellent teachers, and be around the Christian atmosphere. I told my wife on the way
home from this year's lectureship, "Only 360 more days until next year's lectureship". We both look forward
to it every year as it is truly a highlight of the year. Thank you Dan and your whole team for what you do.
We started attending before our children went to Harding. It has become.an annual spiritual get away for us.
We love the soundness of the speakers without feeling like anyone has an agenda or a negative focus.
It is wonderful to hear good Biblical teaching and positive attitudes toward the Lord's church and young people!
Everything was organized and kept on schedule. Very well planned. Campus was easy to navigate
(first time on campus) as well as clean. The fact that the lectureship was free (even parking) is not seen
very often anymore, so that was refreshing and also helped make my personal trip to Harding possible.
Coming from a small congregation, it is wonderful to hear speakers I would otherwise have no opportunity
to listen to. And the fellowship and worship is awesome. Love to hear the voices of over 1500 brothers
and sisters raised in praise to God! This was our second year to attend, and my only question is why
did we not start coming years ago?
