Lectureship Report

My thanks to all of you who helped make the 91st Annual Bible Lectureship our biggest ever! We had record crowds and many of our classes were filled to overflowing. A special thanks to all the presenters, the volunteers and the Lectureship committee for their hard work that made everything go so smoothly.

You’ll want to mark your calendars for the 2015 Harding Bible Lectureship: it will be held on September 27-30, and the theme will be “SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM – Unlocking the Treasures of the Parables.”

Many people have written in to share their experience at the 2014 lectureship. I thought you might find their comments interesting, so you’ll find excerpts below.

What people are saying about Lectureship 2014

“I always love the singing. The lecture that affected me the most was Les Ferguson's Desperately Wanting to Believe Again.ʺ

“I loved the whole thing. The Women's Day on Monday was great and very inspiring. Alan Robertson is so open and honest and it really gets his point across. I come from a small congregation, and sitting in the midst of 2,500 Christians singing praises to God is an awesome experience! Thanks for a great time of learning from the wisdom of others, wonderful fellowship, and inspiration from God's Word!!”

“The Ken Neller series on preaching that was held on Monday was the most helpful for me. I gained a lot from it. Preachers of various ages and various talents covered the subjects very well.”

“I much appreciate the fact that so much of the lectureship--programs and activity--is laid out in a convenient line, from Heritage Center to Bible Building. It is a model of convenience.”

"Preachers Workshop was more informative and I learned lot more. Keep up the good work on it.”

“I appreciated that there were only three class periods and that each time slot offered multiple choices. It was also helpful to have the keys to what each class was geared to. I also liked it all in the same buildings.”

“I liked it all! I can't wait to listen to the lectures I missed. I feel that any growing Christian will appreciate any opportunity to study the Word under a different teacher and would make it a profitable lesson.”

"There was a heightened level of energy and enthusiasm about the Lectureship. Dan Williams did a masterful job as host during the evening sessions.”

“The lectures and classes were well prepared and delivered, and had no vague allusions not based on Scripture. It is very nice to hear well thought out and researched lessons.”

“This is my favorite lectureship among our Christian Universities, including the one I graduated from in the past. I appreciate the quality and doctrinal integrity of the speakers and the atmosphere of the lectures.”

"I liked the way that the school seemed to encourage students to participate and attend as much as possible.”

“I have been in the ministry over forty years and yet, the leadership and ministry sessions were most appropriate for me at this point in my ministry.”

“It was my first time this year and I enjoyed the classes very much. I really liked the ones for the elders.”

"This was my first year to attend but it will not be my last. The classes and speakers were so good. It was just so hard to choose one over the others. All the classes were easy to find and coordinated very well. I loved that you could stay with one topic for several classes or choose to expand.”
