About the Series: In 1998, then Minister of Adult Education, Reverend Dr. William Dols, and two laypeople began a lecture series inviting nationally renowned Jesus scholars to our church. The scholars led the church in a series of forums, conversations and sermons, which introduced emerging trends in Christology, particularly related to Jesus of Nazareth.
Since its inception, the series has expanded to explore a wide range of issues and perspectives related to individual and communal faith formation. The annual series is coordinated and led by a group of laypeople, working together with the Minister of Faith Formation.
Every October a nationally-known scholar, spiritual teacher, or theologian leads a weekend of spiritual discussions and explorations. While Friday evening forums and Sunday sermons are free, tickets are required for Saturday workshops. These workshops often sell out.
Our hope for this series is that it offers the best of contemporary scholarship, Christian theologians and other spiritual teachers to members of Myers Park Baptist, and to the general public. It is our hope that as we expand our minds together, we might grow deeper and closer to God and to our community of faith.
