The Dr. Thomas Stricklin Lectures in Church History

The Stricklin Lectures in Church History were inaugurated in 1997 to honor the legacy of Dr. Tom Stricklin, a founding member of Northminster and a professor of history at the University of Louisiana in Monroe. Since then we have invited distinguished lecturers in to comment on aspects of church history as they are relevant to our identity and work in the present.
