Robert G. and Nellie B. den Dulk Lectures

2024 Lectures on Pastoral Ministry

Westminster Seminary California (WSC) will hold its annual Robert G. and Nellie B. den Dulk Lectures on Pastoral Ministry on Thursday and Friday, March 14–15, 2024. Rev. Chad Vegas is the featured speaker and will give two lectures during this series on “Semper Reformanda and Ministry.”

The lectures hope to address the question: what gives ministers and elders the courage to reform the piety and practice of the church entrusted to their care? As a pastor who has led a church through these changes, Rev. Vegas hopes to demonstrate how the doctrine taught in Scripture, and rightly summarized in the reformed confessions, provides the courage and convictions necessary to reform Christ’s church.

The den Dulk Lectures are open to the public and will be live-streamed.


Rev. Vegas is the founding pastor of Sovereign Grace Church. He has been privileged to minister among the same people for over 23 years. He received his MA in Theology at Talbot School of Theology, and is the founding board chairman of Radius International, an organization that trains people to plant churches among unreached language groups. He is a published author and adjunct faculty at two seminaries. He is also a founding board member of Providence Classical Academy. He has been married to Teresa since 1994 and they have 2 children and one grandson.
