In case you thought that the Solemn Assembly was “old-fashioned,” and out-of-date, and only done in previous generations, hundreds of years ago, here is a list of well-respected modern theologians who participated in a Solemn Assembly on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. on July 4, 1986:

  • Dr. William Barker
  • Rev. Wellington Boone
  • Rev. David Chilton
  • Rev. Gary DeMar
  • Dr. Jay Grimstead
  • Dr. D. James Kennedy
  • Dr. Tim Lahaye
  • Dr. Henry Krabbendam
  • Dr. Peter Marshall
  • Dr. Josh McDowell
  • Dr. Robertson McQuilkin
  • Dr. J.I. Packer

  • Dr. John Perkins
  • Dr. Adrian Rogers
  • Dr. R.J. Rushdoony
  • Mrs. Edith Schaeffer
  • Dr. Luder Whitlock

  • And many others

The “Manifesto for the Christian Church” was one product of that era and 1986 Conference endorsing the need for the Solemn Assembly.  Here is a link to that document online so you can see for yourself the many more names of those who signed off on supporting and actually participating in The Solemn Assembly.
