The Reverend Dr. Stephen H. Tyng

Annual Memorial Lectures

The Annual Stephen Tyng Lectures take place once a year and are a series of lectures where we invite an expert to speak on a specific theological subject. Calvary-St. George's seeks to celebrate the great doctrinal truths of the Protestant Reformation through this new lecture series.  The hope is to revive the great Protestant tradition of St. George's and the Episcopal Church through theological and historical engagement.  

In Honor of The Reverend Dr. Stephen H. Tyng

The Reverend Dr. Stephen H. Tyng was the rector of St. George's Church from 1845-1878.  During that time, with his emphasis on Salvation by God's Grace through Christ's Blood, he was instrumental in the conversion J.P. Morgan to the Christian Faith. Tyng was known as one of the great Evangelical and protestant preachers of New York City.  He was author of a number of publication and was instrumental in strengthening the Protestant Theology and Spirit of the Episcopal Church through such important organizations as the Evangelical Knowledge Society, The American Church Missionary Movement and the Protestant Churchman.
