Dr. Akkerman’s research focused on the nine Nazarene churches in the Pacific Northwest that were planted prior to the foundation of the denomination in 1908. The lecture will make use of pictures and other visual aspects that played a role in the history of these churches.

Akkerman is professor of pastoral theology at NNU and is also a faculty member of NNU’s online Master of Arts in religion. Responding to Dr. Akkerman’s lecture will be Dr. Edwin Crawford, associate professor of philosophy, Northwest Nazarene University.
