The featured speaker for Frank and Pauline Patterson Fall Colloquy 2020 is Dr. Gordon T. Smith.
Dr. Gordon T. Smith will speak to what it means to give theological leadership for the church in a secular age with particular attention to the priority that we sustain the work of the scholar-teacher in the face of a number of threats to this vocation. We will learn like never before what it means to speak and act and teach with resilient hope.
