Public Lecture Series

The 2019 Providence Public Lectures will demonstrate the impressive range of expertise among Providence faculty, whose topics will include politics, morality, missiology, history, biology, hermeneutics, race and gender. Presenting in Winnipeg and Steinbach, Providence professors are excited to bring their scholarship into the public square. Attendees can expect to be intellectually stimulated, perhaps challenged, and to come away with a new appreciation for Christian higher education.

All lectures are free to attend - no registration required!
