The Charles B. Copher Annual Faculty Lecture
This lecture series is named in honor of Dr. Charles B. Copher, who for many years served ITC in the dual capacity of Professor of Biblical Studies (Old Testament) and Languages and Academic Dean. The series enables faculty to be on the cutting-edge of their respective disciplines. The presentation occurs during the ITC Charter Week and is published by the JITC. Originally named The Annual Faculty Lecture Series, the name was changed in March of 1979 as part of the Twentieth Anniversary Celebration of the founding of The ITC.
In the spring of each year a member of the ITC faculty delivers this lecture on the ITC campus.
Dr. Copher is widely published in religious journals and periodicals. The Christian Advocate carried over 60 of his works. Among the publications in which his writings appear are: The Christian Advocate (Central Additional), The Foundation, The Journal of Bible and Religion, Theological Education, and the JITC. Many of Dr. Copher’s writings were published including course books, study guides, sermons, and worship services. Two popular publications are “The Black Presence in the Old Testament” in Stony the Road We Trod edited by Cain Hope Felder, 1991 and Black Biblical Studies: An Anthology of Charles E. Copher, Black Light Fellowship, Chicago Illinois, 1993.
