Registration Now Open for Annual Lectureship Series

Registration Now Open for Annual Lectureship Series

Crowley’s Ridge College’s 21st annual Bible Lectureship Series will take place from April 3-6 on the campus of Crowley’s Ridge College at the Carter Activities Center.

The theme for this year’s lectureship is “Walk This Way,” a study of Ephesians and Colossians. 

Ephesians and Colossians were written by the Apostle Paul in hopes of providing further instruction to two churches looking to mature in their faith. Ironically, Paul, while shackled in prison chains, commissions both churches to walk worthily. The term is so crucial, that throughout these two correspondences, Paul uses it a total of eleven times. This emphasis inspired our theme. Therefore, our thesis for this lectureship is best stated by the imprisoned Paul, “We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10).

Each night will feature praise and worship alongside a keynote, led by Dr. Devin Swindle on Sunday, Dr. Bruce McLarty on Monday, and Dr. Jimmy Adcox on Tuesday. 

To view our full schedule of events, please see below.

You can register online now, by clicking here

For more information on the lectureship, please contact CRC Bible Chair, Jeremy Pierce, at 870-236-6901 or at jpierce@crc.edu.

Dr. Tyrone Allen named CRC Distinguished Alumnus of the Year

Crowley’s Ridge College is honored to name Dr. Tyrone Allen as CRC’s Distinguished Alumnus of the Year. 

Dr. Allen is the seventh child of his family from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was baptized into Christ in 1976 in Morgan City, La.

He is a 1979 CRC alumnus, who would later get a BS from Harding University (1981) and a MA from Pepperdine University (1988) and began serving as a math teacher in 2001 with Montgomery County Public Schools, where he still serves today.

Since 2016, Dr. Allen has served as an adjunct math professor with the University of Maryland Global Campus.

Dr. Allen’s influence is felt beyond the classroom, as he’s served various Churches of Christ throughout Michigan, Arkansas, California, Tennessee, Washington, DC, and currently, Maryland since 1988.

Dr. Allen’s 45 years of service have been supported by his wife, Denise, who he met while he was a student at Pepperdine in 1981. The two have served the Churches of Christ since their marriage and continue to, as adult Bible teachers for the Silver Spring Church of Christ in Maryland. 

The couple enjoys spending time with their two granddaughters, Dyamonique and Gabriela, both of whom were baptized into Christ in 2016. They also enjoy traveling, as they have visited 37 states, Canada, the Caribbean, and Paris, where they always look for brothers and sisters in Christ to worship with.
