May 13

Reformed Ministerial Institute

On Tuesday, May 13, 1952, sessions for a four-day Reformed Ministerial Conference held at Westminster Seminary began with OPC minister and Westminster professor Meredith Kline lecturing on the Night Visions of Zechariah. In addition to Kline's lectures, CRC pastor P. Y. DeJong lectured daily on the doctrine of the covenant in New England theology and OPC minister and Westminster professor Ned Stonehouse on how to exegete Matthew's Gospel.

On Tuesday evening, the Rev. John Clelland, pastor of Emmanuel OPC, Wilmington, Delaware, led a discussion of the Christian and economic theology, and on Wednesday evening OPC minister and Westminster professor Paul Woolley led a discussion of Protestant thought in the twentieth century. On Thursday and Friday evenings, recorded sermons were heard and evaluated during preaching clinics.

The cost of the conference, including tuition, board and room was $15.
