CHICAGO, IL (February 18, 2009) – Al Tizon will deliver the Westerdahl Lectures at North Park Theological Seminary on March 5.

Tizon is the director of Word & Deed Network of the Evangelicals for Social Action/Sider Center on Ministry and Public Policy.

An Evangelical Covenant Church minister, he also is assistant professor of holistic ministry at Palmer (formerly Eastern) Theological Seminary in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.

He will focus on the theme “The Missional Imperative: Preaching as if the World Matters.” It will be presented through two lectures: “The Necessity for Missional Preaching” and “The Elements of Missional Preaching.”

Two books authored by Tizon were released last year. One of them, Linking Arms, Linking Lives, exhorts churches to partner across the “urban-suburban” divide for community transformation. The other, Transformation after Lausanne, documents the transformational movement around the world, specifically in the Philippines. For more on Tizon and the books, click here.

The Westerdahl Lectures are free and open to the public. The first lecture begins at 9 a.m. and the second lecture is at 10:45 a.m.

The Carl G. Westerdahl Lectureship in Evangelism began in 1964 when an endowment fund was established by the Westerdahl family in memory of the late Reverend Carl G. Westerdahl, noted Covenant preacher and evangelist. The first series of lectures was presented in the winter quarter of 1966.
