Summer Celebration (lectureship)


"A Unifying Core: The Message of Romans"

Recap of 2017: (click above to view the slide show!)

We enjoyed a very special Summer Celebration in 2017 as spiritual leaders, individuals, families and church groups from across the country gathered to study significant texts from Romans and discuss critical issues that daily impact congregational life, the culture wars and future unity among believers in a post-Christian world.

Our Keynote speakers included:

Randy Harris, Buddy Bell, Jovan Barrington, Patrick Mead, Dave Clayton, John Mark Hicks, David Young, Jeff Walling & Robert Gardenhire

Most important, we offered a wide variety of speakers, both men and women, whose life journey, career and faith in action supported our mission to reach our diverse attendees. We have more young married couples coming to Summer Celebration than ever before, as well as the generation who raised them! It is an exciting time to remain both traditional and forward-thinking in our class offerings and yearly Summer Celebration theme. We believe there is something for everyone, including young children, teens and college students. If you have any suggestions on how we can make our yearly event any better, we'd love your input. Please contact Scott Sager, VP for Church Services, at and he will return your email with a thoughtful response. Thank you always for your suport and interest in our lectureship. Lipscomb University is honored to have each of you on our campus with your spouse, friends, family members and church groups. We hope to see you in 2018!
