The 2015 William R. Rice Lectures are scheduled for March 18, 2015. The lectures will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at noon, followed by a complimentary lunch. This year’s lecturer is Dr. Deepak Reju and the topic is “On Guard: Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse at Church.” This is a timely and important subject that will strengthen our churches and better equip us to shepherd wisely and effectively. Dr. Reju has written a very helpful book by the same title, and we are pleased to offer a free copy of it to those who serve in pastoral ministry and register by March 1, 2015.
Raised in New Jersey, Deepak Reju serves as an associate pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. His pastoral responsibilities include oversight of the biblical counseling and family ministries at CHBC. A George Washington University graduate, he also holds the M.Div. and Ph.D. degrees from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Deepak and his wife, Sarah, have five children, Zachariah, Lydia, Eden, Noelle, and Abraham.
Please make plans to join us on March 18 for an encouraging, edifying morning of learning and fellowship. Please register here for the lectures by March 10.”
