Chi Rho Lecture Series
Christ Centered Faith Renewal
The Chi Rho Lecture Series is an annual ecumenical lecture series hosted by Central Lutheran Church with participation and support from Northwest Christian University and many community donors and churches. Each year a well-known scholar of Christianity is brought to Eugene to lead a weekend of study, dialogue, and theological reflection. Get information on this year’s lectures here.
Chi Rho has been an important contributor to interdenominational theological conversation in Eugene, Oregon since 1970. We are building on the dedication and commitment of Jerry Dayton who brought outstanding scholars to our area for over 40 years.
About the Logo
The Chi Rho symbol is the superimposed Greek letters Chi and Rho, representing the Christ. It is one of the earliest Christian symbols. Our logo includes the Chi Rho symbol, a trumpet, and a banner. The trumpet states our concern for proclamation. The banner symbolizes our celebration.
The cost of putting on the Chi Rho Lecture Series is completely covered by donations from supporters who believe that the life of faith means a lifetime of learning. Costs are kept to an absolute minimum by relying mostly on volunteer work, but it still requires thousands of dollars each year to bring in high quality speakers.
The financial generosity of Chi Rho donors ensures the vitality and continuity of this ecumenical, community resource.To make a contribution to Chi Rho, please make a check out to Central Lutheran Church and write Chi Rho Lectures in the memo line. Contributions can be dropped off at the church office 1857 Potter Street, Eugene, OR 97403.
