Lectureship Series

Azusa Pacific Seminary is committed to demonstrating the vitality of the historic Wesleyan message as a response to the complex spiritual and social issues facing Christians today. In keeping with this purpose, outstanding scholars are invited to campus to present the results of studies in Wesleyan holiness thought. In 1991, this lectureship was renamed to honor Malcolm R. Robertson, Ed.D., for his 43 years of faithful service to Azusa Pacific University as a professor and administrator.
