Sowers Lectureship Program
The Sowers Lectureship Program connects you with distinguished lecturers in the field of biblical studies. Enrich your next program with one of several lectures, which cover a specific topic related to biblical history, theology, interpretation, culture, and more.
The lecture fee for each speaker ranges from $150-250. Sponsors of a lecture provided by this program pay the lecture fee directly to Sowers and cover the lecturer's travel, lodging, and meal expenses, if applicable (meaning conducted in residence or onsite). Each scholar in the lectureship program is asked to donate the lecture fees from one of his or her lectures to the ministry.
The fee covers a 90-120 minute presentation, which includes a question and answer session. Any further requests made of the speaker (e.g. class visits, additional talks, etc.) should be covered by an additional honorarium paid directly by the host institution to the speaker and will be his or hers to keep.
Sowers is currently booking lectures for the 2017 academic year. You can browse the lectures offered by the state where lecturers are located, subject area, title, and name of lecturer. Once you have selected a lecture, please contact Gary Staszak, Sowers director, to discuss arrangements.
