Simpson Lectures

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth..
~ 2 Timothy 2:15


Mr. Gerald K. Simpson of Fairhaven, Deer Island, New Brunswick, established an endowment in 1979 to finance an annual series of lectures on the practice of ministry prepared primarily for students, pastors, and spouses. The lecturers are outstanding persons in ministry who focus on the role of the minister as both preacher and pastor. This lectureship has welcomed many distinguished preachers including John N. Gladstone, Haddon W. Robinson, Alan Sell, and Gardner Taylor.

We are grateful for Gerald Simpson’s generosity by which this lectureship is offered free of charge.
