A few lecturers

Hear speakers from all walks of life

You've heard about Christian Science but you want to know more? What’s in it for me and my world? Is it based on the Bible? What does it teach about Jesus? Can you tell me more about Mary Baker Eddy?

A great place to learn more would be to listen to a podcast or watch a lecture on Christian Science either in person or on the Web. These events cover a variety of public topics and show how the teachings of Christian Science bring healing and regeneration to you, your friends and community, businesses, governments, and more.  The ideas shared enrich lives regardless of religious affiliations and help you understand how you can use the truths of Christian Science to bless and be blessed.

The Board of Lectureship

The Christian Science Board of Lectureship is the speakers bureau for The First Church of Christ, Scientist.  It was established by Mary Baker Eddy in 1898 to meet the rapidly growing interest in her discovery of the Science of Christ-healing. The world has undergone enormous changes in the past 100 years. Yet Christian Science is as relevant today as it was in 1898 or even in 30 AD when Jesus demonstrated the healing power of God, taught it to his disciples, and sent them out to preach to others and to “heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, and cast out demons.”

Meet the lecturers

Currently there are 48 lecturers on the Board of Lectureship living in 16 different countries. They are a diverse group of individuals with a variety of backgrounds, nationalities, and languages. They are all experienced practitioners of Christian Science healing and are all happy to answer your questions via email or phone.
