Lectureship At-A-Glance

From the Desk of the Host Minister

Welcome to this opportunity for interaction with the 2018 National Lectureship of the Churches of Christ website. We invite you to begin your journey toward participation in the lectureship recognizing the theme: Runners, to Your Marks: Expositions on the Race by Faith in the Exhortation to the Hebrews (Hebrews 12:1–2). The first recipients of the Exhortation to the Hebrews understood that the race by faith was a race different from all others. And that the rewards were unparalleled, incomparable, and eternal. Today’s race by faith runners are invited to their marks to begin whatever race is appointed to them.


The race by faith involves many events, distances, obstacles, and hardships. 2018 lectureship presenters will help to train, to teach, and to prepare runners for their individual challenges. The city and scene for this event are suited to prepare all for their continued journeys. There will be opportunities for involvement for young and senior, experienced and novitiate, male and female. The environment and activities will provide all the opportunity to reflect on the spiritual and to come to know fellow faith athletes better through social interaction and encouraging fellowship. Prepare now to hear the call, “Runners, to Your Marks!”
