The Nordenhaug Memorial lectures were established in memory of Dr. Josef Nordenhaug, one time President of the Baptist Theological Seminary, Rüschlikon (1950-1960) and a former Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance (1960-1969).
The aim of the lectureship is to provide lectures given by specialists in their fields and are designed to assist pastors in their work of Christian ministry.
