Pepperdine to Host 58th Annual Bible Lectures

Approximately 5,000 faithful are expected to gather on Pepperdine’s

themed “Shaped by the Cross, Great Themes from I Corinthians.”
Opening the theme lectures Tuesday, May 1 at 7 p.m. in Firestone
Fieldhouse is keynote speaker Dr. Jack Reese, minister of the Highland
Church of Christ in Abilene, Texas. Six other keynote lectures will be given
over the course of the four-day event including, “Receiving the Spirit of
God” by Mark Frost; “Living for the Gospel” by Don Mclaughlin; “The Lord’s
Table, the Lord’s People” by Tim Kelley; “Becoming the Body of Christ” by
Dan Bouchelle; “Love: The Church’s Identity” by Brad Small; and “Living in
Hope” by Jeff Walling.
In addition to the lectures, 300 classes, mealtime programs and
singing events will be offered throughout the days. “Of all the outstanding
conferences and seminars Pepperdine conducts each year, the annual Bible
Lectures program is certainly among the most inspirational and enriching,”
said Pepperdine President Andrew Benton. “It is an honor to host such an
outstanding event.”
An appreciation dinner has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 2 at
4:30 p.m. at the Rockwell Dining Center in honor of Calvin and Mozell
Bowers. Calvin Bowers is Pepperdine’s director of Equal Opportunity and
