AMBS Lectureships

Each year, AMBS hosts two lectureships that bring distinguished thinkers and practitioners to our community to share their their research and reflections. The Theological Lectureship and the Peace Studies Guest includes academic presentations. However, they also provide space for scholars to offer insights into their faith journey in the context of worship.

2016–2017 Guests
