For 66 years, from 1958-2024, Harding School of Theology in Memphis has had a national and global impact training over 1800 graduates and 4700 students. A large percentage of influential ministers, academic thought-leaders, and innovative practitioners in Churches of Christ trace their roots back to HST. As the school prepares to transition to Searcy, Arkansas in fall 2024, this collection of original essays celebrates the influence of HST in Memphis and looks to the future of theological education and missional leadership.
