Mo.—February 28, 2006—The Assemblies of God Theological
Seminary (AGTS) will host the Martin Luther King Jr. and William
J. Seymour Leadership Forum with Dr. David Daniels III and Dr.
Cecil M. Robeck on Thursday, March 9, 2006, in the William J.
Seymour Chapel at AGTS.
This leadership forum is part of a semester-long
effort by AGTS to reflect on the relationship between the Pentecostal
tradition and the issue of racial reconciliation. While early
Azusa Street participants declared that the color line was washed
away in the blood of Jesus Christ,” history would indicate
that American Pentecostals have emerged largely along racial
lines. This forum will use the lives of Martin Luther King Jr.
and William J. Seymour as lenses through which to understand
the religious and social aspects of the church’s moral
leadership in society.
Schedule of Events for Thursday, March
3-4:15 p.m. — “Martin Luther King
Jr. and William J. Seymour: Spiritual Leaders of the 20th Century,” Dr.
David Daniels III, Professor of Church History at McCormick Theological
Seminary and First Vice Chairman of the Society for Pentecostal
6-7:15 p.m. — “William J. Seymour:
Model of Pentecostal Leadership,”
Dr. Cecil M. Robeck, Professor of Church History at Fuller Theological

Look for audio recordings of these events online at www.agts.edu
