MacDonald Lecture Series

Every winter, Central Seminary conducts the MacDonald Lectures Series in Bible and Theology. This academic lecture series was created in memory of Charles MacDonald, Th.D. (1903-1971), beloved professor of pastoral theology at Central Seminary. Dr. MacDonald pastored churches in Illinois and Michigan before coming to Central Seminary to teach. His gracious and loving approach to the ministry served as an example for many who studied under him and observed his life.
