Lectures

CRCDS Fall and Spring Lecture Series 

A key component of the CRCDS education and experience are the annual Fall and Spring Lectures. The Lectures connect nationally and internationally known scholars and leaders to CRCDS for a critical and engaging conversation on a range of topics related to the Black Church, women in ministry, LGBTQ+ issues, preaching, pastoral ministry, family ministry, children and adolescent health and spirituality, ethics, ecumenism, inter-faith studies, and Veterans’ issues. Each week of lectures includes worship services and opportunities to reflect on God’s call, both as individuals and as a community.
