Springfield, Mo.—March 2, 2009—The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS) will host Dick Foth, minister-at-large in Washington, D.C. and part of the pastoral leadership team at Timberline Church in Ft. Collins, Colo., for its Spring Lecture Series, March 10-12. His topic will be “Jesus and the Public Square: Lessons Learned in D.C.” Foth is a spiritual adviser to a number of political figures in Washington, D.C. and is a popular speaker in the areas of leadership, relationships and communication.

He and his wife, Ruth, co-authored a book entitled When the Giant Lies Down. They have been published in Virtue, Today’s Pentecostal Evangel, Advance, Enrichment and Moody Monthly.
