Heyer Lectures


Heyer Lectures


The Heyer Lectureship was established to honor George S. Heyer Jr., professor emeritus of the history of Doctrine, for his 30 years as a valued member of the Austin Seminary Faculty. The purpose of this annual lecture is to symbolize and advance the important relationship between the academy and the church, to recall the long-lasting cooperation between UT-Austin and the seminary, and also to encourage the positive relationship between faith and knowledge.
