Bruce Gourley and Taffey HallDr. Gourley is one of our congregation’s favorite presenters. His presentation is clear and to the point. One of our church members said recently, “He is so interesting. He just makes it [church history] come alive.” (a pastor in Montana)

The non-profit Baptist History and Heritage Society is the leading scholarly organization for Baptist historians in America. We integrate scholarship into top notch congregational resources in the form of publications, printed and digital resources, conferences, seminars, dialogue and special events. The Society represents Baptists around the world and is funded by membership dues, the generosity of donors, and grants.
