The Bauman Lectures take place every year during the fall term. They are named after Clifford Bauman, our longest serving trustee member, and long-time member of Jarvis Street Baptist Church, who contributes immensely to the ministry of the seminary and the lives of the students.

This year the lectures will take place from September 23rd to 25th, with our annual convocation service wrapping up the weekend. The speaker is Dr. Martin Williams, who teaches at Reformed Theological College in Australia.
