About Staley Lectures

The Staley Distinguished Christian Scholar Program is a project of the Thomas F. Staley Foundation, established in the fall of 1969 by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas F. Staley and Judge and Mrs. H. H. Haynes of Bristol, Tennessee.  The Thomas F. Staley Foundation is firmly persuaded that the message of the Christian gospel, when proclaimed in its historic fullness, is always contemporary, relevant, and meaningful to any generation.  To this end, the Foundation seeks to bring to the college and university campuses of America distinguished scholars who truly believe and can clearly communicate the Christian gospel to students.

The Asbury University community is grateful to the Thomas F. Staley Foundation for allowing it to participate in this annual program.
