Dr. Jim Fleming Returns to Church Street

The Education Committee is pleased to welcome Dr. Jim Fleming back to Church Street for a series of five lectures over two days. This year Dr. Fleming will focus on "Little Words in the Bible That Make a Difference."

Dr. Fleming is the founder and director of the Explorations in Antiquity Center in LaGrange, GA. There, ancient history comes alive with full-scale archaeological reconstructions of discoveries from the ancient world. While living in Israel from 1974 to 2006, Dr. Fleming founded and directed the World of the Bible Archaeological Museum and Pilgrim Center in Jerusalem. He holds an Ed.D. degree from Southwestern Theological Seminary and has taught classes at Hebrew University in Israel. He is Adjunct Faculty member of a number of accredited graduate schools.
