McIver Lecture Series
The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) will be coming to Little Chapel on February 21 and 22 as part of the Malcolm McIver Lecture Series. Dr. Heath Rada, a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, Union Presbyterian Seminary and NC State University will share with us on Saturday, February 21 from 2:00-4:00PM and will lead an adult Sunday School class on Sunday, February 22 in the sanctuary at 9:15AM, and then preach at the 10:30AM worship service.
Dr. Rada retired from the position of CEO of the Greater Richmond Chapter of the American Red Cross where he served as coordinator for the work of that organization in Virginia and the District of Columbia. Prior to his work with the American Red Cross, Dr. Rada served as President of the Presbyterian School of Christian Education (now Union Presbyterian Seminary) in Richmond.
As an active church member, Dr. Rada has served in numerous capacities on the local, presbytery and national levels of the Presbyterian Church. Currently he serves on the boards of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, the Montreat Conference Center, and the Presbyterian Homes of North Carolina. He is a published author, a noted speaker, and has been honored numerous times for his contributions to his work and his community. He was North Carolina’s first Community Educator of the Year.
Dr. Rada’s talk on Saturday will be about the “State of the Church” and will include his thoughts about the future of the church and its continued ministry in the world. Following his talk on Saturday there will be a time for questions and answers.
The McIver Lecture series was established in 2009 in memory of Rev. Dr. Malcolm C. McIver III. The purpose of the series is to provide opportunities for lectures on the Nature and Mission of the Church with a focus on Matthew 28:16-20.
