Here We Stand - The Protestant Reformation
In 1517, a monk named Martin Luther nailed 95 Theses for academic discussion to the door of the Wittenberg church. Such a simple act – but what a great fire was ignited from that little spark!
We warmly invite you to join us for our 2022 Theology Conference. Our hope is that this year, you would walk away with a deeper understanding of one of the most significant periods in Church History – the Protestant Reformation. Dr. Shawn Wright will be our guide for this study of the Reformation – as we consider its leaders, its theology, and its ongoing legacy.
As we seek to live as faithful Christians in the 21st century, let us be eager to learn from those who went before us!
We hope you can join us.

Dr. Shawn D. Wright
Professor of Church History
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Dr. Shawn Wright has been a professor of Church History at Southern Seminary since 2009. He holds a BA from Duke University, an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and a PhD from Southern Seminary. As a historian he has published books and articles dealing with the history of the Calvinistic tradition.
Before coming to SBTS, Dr. Wright served Southern Baptist churches in New England. Now he serves as one of the elders at Clifton Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, where he oversees the pastoral internship, helps to raise up leaders within the church, and prepares men and women for cross-cultural ministry. Some of Shawn's published works dealing with aspects of ecclesiology flow out of this local church ministry.
Shawn and his wife Gretchen are the proud parents of five sons and two daughters-in-law and the grandparents of three wonderful children. Shawn loves to watch his sons play soccer, as well as to catch an occasional Duke basketball or New England Patriots game.
