The annual Remind & Renew conference is made possible in part through the generosity of the following sustaining endowments: 


The Griggs Lectureship is provided by First Christian Church, Tulsa. This lectureship was instituted in 1987 to keep alive the heritage of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in an increasingly post-denominational age. This lectureship was named to honor Roy L. Griggs, Senior Minister of First Christian Church in Tulsa from 1979-1997. In 2014, the congregation gave the endowment to the Seminary both to create a partnership and because a matching gift fund at the Seminary given by Chester and Debbie Cadieux doubled the size of the endowment. The purpose of the lectureship now allows the topic to include the future of the Christian movement in North America.


The Sam and Mary Howard Ministers’ Week Endowment. This fund partially underwrites general expenses. Sam, a leading Tulsa businessman and philanthropist, along with his wife, Mary, began this endowment in 1994. The Howards hope was that others would also value continuing education for ministers and make similar contributions to this endowment.


Oreon E. Scott Lectureships. Established by the Oreon E. Scott Foundation and designed to bring the academy and church communities together at Phillips Theological Seminary in the memory of Oreon E. Scott, who was a Christian businessman, an active lay person, and deeply interested in ministerial education.  


The Stacey Pastors’ Workshop was the brainchild of the late Rev. Dr. Norman Stacey. The inaugural workshop was held in 1991, a year prior to Dr. Stacey’s death. The purpose of the workshop is to “help seminary students and pastors deal with everyday challenges and problems that exist in every congregational situation.” Dr. Stacey’s ministry was marked by a commitment to social justice and to identifying and encouraging men and women to consider God’s call into ministry.

The J. Clyde Wheeler Lectureship on Ministry. Established in 1977 by Crown Heights Christian Church in Oklahoma City and various individuals, to honor the distinguished ministry of J. Clyde Wheeler, who served Crown Heights Christian Church for 31 years. Dr. Wheeler delivered the first lecture in the series in 1978.
