Kistemaker Academic Lecture Series

Since 1994, The Kistemaker Academic Lecture Series has provided a venue where distinguished scholars can address the seminary community on a wide array of subjects related to biblical, systematic, and practical theology.

The series is comprised of four lectures held in the Pamplin Chapel. They also include a Community Lunch with Q&A held in the Fellowship Hall, and a book signing held at the bookstore. The lectures are held on a given Tuesday and Wednesday during the spring semester depending on the lecturer’s availability.

This lecture series was established in 1994 and was renamed in honor of New Testament Professor Emeritus Simon J. Kistemaker, Ph.D. in 2003.
