Jonathan Walton is the new Dean of the School of Divinity at Wake Forest University where he is also a Presidential Scholar on Religion and Society. An ordained Baptist minister and widely known scholar and preacher, Dr. Walton came to Wake Forest from Harvard, where he served as the Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the University’s Memorial Church. Join us as he leads us in a Saturday evening lecture (dinner and childcare provided), Sunday morning Adult Forum, and then preaches in Sunday worship. Further details forthcoming, but Save the Date!

Join Alan this month in our Pastor’s Book Club, reading Dr. Walton’s A Lens of Love and meeting for discussion on Jan 8, 15 and 22 in the Pastor’s office. 

The Vanguard Speaker Series at First Baptist Greensboro is an annual event that invites an influential theologian or biblical scholar to lead the church in conversation, study, and worship. Made possible by a generous donation, since its inception the series has engaged premiere scholars in Baptist life and beyond to help the congregation grow deeper in faith and community.
