Though theological books can sharpen our minds, sound theology springs to life in the hands of Christians serving on the ground.

At our monthly lecture series named for Presbyterian pastor Francis J. Grimké, we spotlight faithful Christian practitioners from Nigeria to Nepal, the Middle East to East Harlem, and from Appalachia to Australia.

Community neighbors, students, local pastors, and parachurch leaders – all are welcome to gather around food, fellowship and prayer, and to engage with speakers as they apply the Bible to a variety of global, cultural, and Christian-life topics.

We’ll be delighted to see you at our next Grimké lecture. Find the current speaker schedule below, or email
