Currie-Strickland Lectures

The Currie-Strickland Distinguished Lectures in Christian Ethics were established by Gary and Mollie Elliston to honor their friends, Dr. David R. Currie and the late Phil Strickland. The lecture series is designed to provide a special opportunity for students, faculty, and the general public to consider the importance of Christian ethics in the workplace, in the classroom, in ministry, in national and world affairs, and in the minds of Christians as they make decisions in their daily lives.
