The Gardner C. Taylor Lectures on Preaching

The Gardner C. Taylor Lectures on Preaching is annual event on the Interdenominational Theological Center campus (it convenes in October of each year). The lecture series bears the name of Gardner Calvin Taylor, a prominent 20th century Baptist preacher known for his classical oratory. He is widely believed to be among the 20th century’s greatest preachers. Numerous times Dr. Taylor’s portrait appeared in Ebony Magazine, describing him as the pulpit’s standard bearer. Others have called Taylor the Pulpit King while others the Pulpit Laureate.

In addition, the Gardner C. Taylor Archives is a part of dedicated space located on the grounds of the Interdenominational Theological Center. Many of Taylor’s sermons are cataloged digitally and available to students and scholars for research.
