George Walker Redding was the pastor, teacher, mentor, guide and conscience for generations of young Christians. Bible Professor at Georgetown College for 30 years, he was the standard for godly instruction for many students in his life of service â€“ in the classroom, in the pulpit and in his everyday life. A 1927 alumnus, Dr. Reddingâ€™s calling to teach the bible served as the model for faculty at his alma mater and, in retirement, at three other Kentucky Baptist schools. Family and friends established this award in memory of Dr. Redding.
The award is sponsored by the Marshall Center for Christian Ministry and is presented at the Baccalaureate service in May.
