We are excited (and think it’s only fitting) to hold Harding School of Theology’s fifteenth run this year in 2015! The 15th Annual Run for the Son 5K Run/1 Mile Fun Walk is scheduled for Saturday, September 19, 2015. Registration will begin at 7:00 AM, and the race will start at 8:00 AM. The starting and ending locations of the race are at HST (1000 Cherry Road, Memphis, TN 38117). The course runs through the beautiful neighborhood surrounding HST in the heart of East Memphis.
Registration for this event is $12 in advance (either online or by mail) or $15 on the race day. Participants will receive a race t-shirt and a goody bag. Runners and walkers across the Mid-South come back each year to enjoy the camaraderie, competition, comfy t-shirts, and cool gift bags that have made Run for the Son a favorite Memphis race for many. There is even an ongoing competition between the HST faculty and students, which leaves spectators
casting lots to determine the winner entertained. Everyone is encouraged to come out and participate!
Run for the Son is sponsored by the Harding School of Theology Advancement Office and Women for Harding. The purpose of this event is to raise scholarship funds for HST students. For more information about the race, you can contact the HST Advancement Office at 901-432-7723 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on race day!

On May 18-19th, twelve scholars gathered at Harding School of Theology to
discuss “Ephesus As a Religious Center under the Principate” (roughly the first three centuries of the Roman empire). The speakers included archaeologists and New Testament scholars from: Austria, New Zealand, and various parts of the United States. They gathered to present papers ranging from recent archaeological discoveries in Ephesus to various cultural features connected with Ephesus that illuminate elements of early Christianity.
The presenters and over 200 attendees gathered in honor of Dr. Richard Oster on the occasion of his 65th birthday. Oster, who has taught New Testament at Harding School of Theology since 1978, has focused much of his academic energies and publishing on materials related to Ephesus and authored the internationally acclaimed article from which the conference got its title. The proceedings of the conference are to be published in a book.
To honor Dr. Oster for his 65th birthday, you may donate a book to the Graves Memorial Library at HST in his honor. Click to order.
