Forrest F. Reed Lecture

The Forrest F. Reed Lecture is presented biennially (in even years) by Disciples of Christ Historical Society. A forum for ideas on how theology, history and culture interconnect, the Lecture was established in 1964 by a permanent gift from Forrest Reed.

Reed was a Nashville publisher, businessman and lay leader of Woodmont Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). From 1953 until his death in 1975, Mr. Reed was a member of the Board of Trustees of Disciples of Christ Historical Society and served several terms as its Chair.
