Lectureship Visitors Expected to Arrive Soon in Henderson

Henderson, Tenn. - Feb 02, 2017

They’re coming! Visitors to Henderson will start arriving this weekend in anticipation of Freed-Hardeman University’s 81st Annual Bible Lectureship. Sessions begin Sunday evening, Feb. 5, at 7:00pm. Phil Sanders, speaker for “In Search of the Lord’s Way,” a national television ministry, will discuss “A Vision for the Kingdom.”

Sanders will be the first of 160 speakers to teach or preach during the week. The lectureship will conclude Thursday evening at 10:00pm, when Jeremy Hall speaks on “Integrity: Even When You Are in Distress” in Chapel Hall. Sandwiched in between are sessions for men, women, children and teenagers. Special workshops for youth workers, caregivers, those who work in Hispanic ministries and personal evangelists are all on the schedule.

The theme for the 2017 lectureship is “Identity in Crisis: Daniel’s Vision for the Future.” “Christians today should not forget Daniel’s vision for the future, even in the midst of a cultural identity crisis,” Doug Burleson, lectureship director, said.

FHU President Joe Wiley added, “We believe both young Christians just beginning their walk in Christ and seasoned veterans who have maintained a life-long commitment to the Lord will find information beneficial for their journey.”
