Since 2009, Baptist Seminary of Kentucky has hosted an annual lecture series in honor of Dr. Glenn E. Hinson. The E. Glenn Hinson Lecture Series honors the life and work of Dr. E. Glenn Hinson by inviting lecturers who share his passion for Christian scholarship in and for the life of the church and the world.
On March 1, 2021, BSK will host the Hinson Lectures virtually, a first in this format, due to the ongoing pandemic. This format will allow persons across the country to attend the lectures when it has previously been a regional event. “We are encouraged with this year’s format and the possibilities for individuals from across the country to participate in this unique and formational program,” says BSK President, David Cassady.
This year’s Hinson Lectures speaker is Dr. Doug Weaver, Director of Undergraduate Studies and Professor of Baptist Studies at Baylor University. Dr. Weaver’s focus will be on Baptist History and Pentecostalism. His lectures are entitled, “Holy Spirit Power: Baptists and the Experience of Pentecost(alism)” and Baptists and the Charismatic Experience: From Cessationism to ‘Carpet Time.’”
The Hinson Lectures are free this year, due to the virtual format, and will be held on Monday, March 1, 2021 from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM. To register, visit bsk.edu/hinson.
