Celebrating the Legacy of Christian Ministry

The Torchbearers’ Legacy Luncheon was developed in 2012 to honor unsung heroes of Christian education who have served in the ministry of teaching for over 50 years. In 2015, the Luncheon was reimagined to include awards in three areas of Christian ministry: Christian education, Church Leadership, and Pastoral Care. In 2016, these awards were named as lasting memorials for exemplary individuals who dedicated their lives to that area of service:
