About

Purpose of the 2021 Lecture Series

To continue to honor the life and preaching legacy of Charles Edward Booth.  Preaching the Gospel was a life calling for Dr. Booth. He traveled the world preaching and teaching.

To provide clergy, church leaders, and seminarians, the necessary instruction and tools needed to keep preaching relevant and Christocentric in pandemic culture.

To raise scholarship resources to help primarily those students who are engaged in  Doctoral level work and pursuing a degree from United Theological Seminary.
