The Salzman Lecture Series was established in 1998 to honor the memory of Lewinsville elder and outstanding Presbyterian layman, Howard Salzman. The annual lecture is an opportunity for reflection on three areas central to Howard’s own ministry: public affairs, global missions, and Christian education.
Howard was an active contributor to evolving Presbyterian issues and programs during his 25 years at Lewinsville. In addition to his service as commissioner to the National Capital Presbytery, he was also vice chair of the Global Mission Ministry Unit of the General Assembly.
Professionally, Howard’s career included serving as an economist for the Pan American Union, and later, as a program executive for the Organization of American States. When he retired, he was Director of the Office of International Cooperation.
Previous lecturers have included: Jim Wallis, E.J. Dionne, Glenn Tinder, LeRoy Walters, Katherine Marshall, Philip Wogaman, and the late Rep. John Lewis.
