About the Series
The Barndollar Lectureship Series was established in 1993 in memory of W. Walker Barndollar. It honors his years of service to BBC&S as a professor committed to the pursuit of academic excellence. The desire is for Seminary faculty to choose a speaker with academic credibility who can model the finest in English Bible exposition to seminarians.
The annual event enables BBC&S students and faculty to meet and interact with well-known, respected theologians and teachers on important theological matters. Lecturers expand students' horizons and stimulate them to dig deeper into the particular theme area. Pastors and other community members are encouraged to attend Dr. Snelling's lectures.
