Dr. Peter Teague is the keynote speaker for the 2019 ABR Friends Banquet

Mark your calendars for an evening full of encouragement and inspiration! Updates from the ABR staff and a powerful message from our keynote speaker, Dr. Peter Teague, President of Lancaster Bible College.

Dr. Teague, a native of Iowa, assumed his duties as President of Lancaster Bible College on July 1, 1999. He served on the Board of Trustees for nine years before joining the administrative team as Dean of Undergraduate Education. Prior to his appointment as Dean in 1998, Dr. Teague spent 23 years at Christian School of York as Director of Development (1975-79) and as Superintendent (1979-98).

Dr. Teague earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Psychology from Sterling College, a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Luther Rice Seminary, and Doctor of Education from Nova Southeastern University.

We welcome Dr. Teague as our keynote speaker with much admiration and appreciation for his many years of faithful service in support of the Christian education of young men and women. Now in his last year as President of Lancaster Bible College, he has set a standard of excellence and leadership that has powerfully impacted a generation of students. 

Our banquet this year will have a very special focus, as we honor the life and ministry of Dr. Bryant Wood, who has served with the ministry of ABR since 1986. Dr. Wood’s amazing career in archaeology, research, writing, and teaching has profoundly impacted the Church, from the vaunted halls of academia to the pews of churches around the world. Please join us as we celebrate and honor this devoted servant of the Lord. Has Dr. Wood’s ministry touched your life? Join us and add your voice to the celebration!

So mark your calendars now and join us for an evening full of encouragement and inspiration! In addition to hearing an inspiring word from Dr. Teague, we will hear important updates from the ABR staff on the important work the Lord is performing through the ministry of ABR. And finally, come see a life-size replica of The Great Isaiah Scroll as well as replicas of some of the great ancient New Testament era Codices: Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, and Vaticanus. All of this and the amazing food and hospitality of our friends at Shady Maple!

Sign up early to reserve your seat in advance. We are looking forward to a great night of Christian fellowship.
