Conferences, Lectures, and Workshops
All on campus lectures take place at 11:10 a.m. in room 205 of Garrett-Evangelical’s Main Building, unless otherwise noted. Lectures are recorded and available on the seminary’s YouTube channel with the lecturer’s approval. Conferences are typically held in the Chapel of the Unnamed Faithful and various classrooms throughout Garrett-Evangelical’s Main Building. You will be able to find more information about the conferences in the fall. Portions of these conferences will be recorded and with each speaker’s permission we will post their addresses on the seminary’s YouTube channel.
