Rev. Dr. Lewis Brogdon, Assistant Professor of New Testament and Black Church Studies and Director of the Black Church Studies Program at LPTS, was the keynote speaker at the Martin Luther King Jr. community banquet in Dayton, Ohio, on January 16, 2012. Dr. Brogdon’s speech, “Have You Been to the Mountain Top?
,” encouraged individuals to engage often in mountain-top experiences in order to become stronger, hope-filled leaders who can serve with a sense of freedom in the midst of challenges and despair.
Government officials, interfaith leaders, more than 50 members of Trinity Presbyterian Church (Dayton), and several hundred members of the Dayton community attended the event. In addition to Dr. Brogdon’s family, a Louisville Seminary contingency also attended and included:
