The Southwest Speaker Annual Series includes:

Blandy Lecture

Presented each November by the Southwest Alumni Association, this annual gathering was created to honor the Very Rev. Gray M. Blandy for his ministry and work as the first dean of the Seminary of the Southwest.

Payne Lecture

Hosted by Seminary of the Southwest’s Board of Trustees, the Payne Lecture is an annual lecture presented each February that honors the Rt. Rev. Claude E. Payne, former chair of the seminary’s board and bishop of the Diocese of Texas, retired.

Harvey Lecture

Conceived at Seminary of the Southwest as a way of honoring the late Dean Hudnall Harvey, who died unexpectedly in 1972, Southwest established the Harvey Lectures – an annual series that would be overseen by student leaders and that would address the relationship between pastoral leadership and contemporary issues confronting the church.

The Monday Connection

Connecting Sunday’s faith with Monday work, the theme of The Monday Connection is our need to apply what we experience in church on Sunday to the secular world on Monday. The tri-annual series features one or two guest speakers sharing their stories about translating faith into works.
