Welcome to the 2017 Faulkner Lectures. Our theme is The Holy Spirit. As you can imagine, this theme has stoked much interest. The program plans to address a wide range of topics that are directly related to the Holy Spirit’s work in the Scripture, in the church, and in the Christian. There is sure to be some spirited debate as we explore the Holy Spirit’s work today.
In addition to the theme, we will explore a wide range of topics, some relating to the family, evangelism, and leadership. As usual, the Friends of the Restoration will host a series of lectures on Monday, March 6. The series will end with a special keynote dinner at 5:00 PM.
On Tuesday, March 7, at 5 PM, during the Silver Circle, Alumni, and Friends Dinner, we will honor Dr. and Mrs. Carl Cheatham for their outstanding service to the university, to the church, and to the community.
A special church and business workshop will be hosted on Thursday, March 9. Dr. David Johnson, assistant dean of the college of business, has coordinated a dynamic program addressing the challenges to Christianity in the market place.
Our keynote speakers for chapel and the evening assemblies will surely convict and inspire – Melvin Otey, David Shannon, Clark Sims, Allen Webster, and Mike Whisenant.
And the Youth and Family Ministry Summit will provide resources and information that seek to equip and to encourage those who are in the trenches working with families and young people.
Be sure to review the program for other special events, lectures, entertainment, and opportunities for fellowship.
The Drury Inn in Montgomery offers special discounted rates for those who attend Faulkner events. If you need help finding accommodations, please let me know and I will try to direct you to the right person or place.
I look forward to your arrival.
