Turnage Speaker Series
THE FREDERICK E. TURNAGE
DISTINGUISHED SPEAKER SERIES AT LAKESIDE:
CONVERSATIONS ON CHRISTIAN CITIZENSHIP
The Frederick E. Turnage Distinguished Speaker Series at Lakeside: Conversations on Christian Citizenship was inagurated in 2014 thanks to a generous gift from the Turnage family and friends of the late Fred Turnage. This annual event brings well known speakers to Rocky Mount to help us explore the various ways in which we might live out our faith as citizens of our community. The series will seek out experts with vast experience in the church, public service, business, education, the arts, the sciences, non-profit organizations, and other areas of our common life.
Fred Turnage was a life-long resident of Rocky Mount, an attorney who served
citizens of this region, and mayor of our city for thirty-four years. He was also a member of Lakeside for fifty years and served in many leadership capacities. This series will blend the two passions in Fred’s life: concerned citizenship and faithful living.
The 2018 event will be held January 28-29. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Luke A Powery, Dean of the Chapel at Duke University.
All events will be held at:
Lakeside Baptist Church
1501 Sunset Avenue
Rocky Mount, North Carolina 27804
