The series will feature Dr. Charles T. Carter on Tuesday, Dr. Robert Smith on Wednesday and Dr. Doug Webster on Thursday. All will speak on the theme, "Proclaiming Jesus as Lord," at 11 a.m. each day. The public is invited free of charge. Programs on Wednesday and Thursday will be in A. Gerow Hodges Chapel.

Tuesday's service, a joint worship with the Alabama State Board of Missions' State Evangelism Conference, will be in Wright Center Concert Hall. Samford School of the Arts dean Dr. Joseph Hopkins and his wife, Suzanne, will present music.

A by-reservation discussion luncheon will follow the Wednesday program. For information and reservations, call (205) 726-2731.

The annual Conger lecture series is made possible through the generosity of the late Col. William E. Conger, Jr., a longtime personal advisor to Ralph Waldo Beeson, founding benefactor of Beeson Divinity School.
