The Petticrew Faith-in-Action program, now in its 29th year, is a testament to the generosity and humanity of Dick Petticrew and his wife of 69 years, Sylvia “Sally” Eunice MacDermid Petticrew.

C. Richard “Dick” Petticrew was a faithful Presbyterian and a successful business, political, religious, community and philanthropic leader. Because he wanted to help clergy and businesspeople better understand each other, he established the Petticrew Faith-in-Action Seminar in 1986 through a generous gift to Christian Theological Seminary. The aim of the program is to help church and civic leaders attain an informed and balanced perspective on some of the most pressing ethical and moral issues affecting American society. Past keynote speakers have included Richard Lugar, John Lechleiter, William Placher, James Morris, Stephen Carter, Ben Carson, William Hudnut, John Polkinghorne, J. Irwin Miller, Odell Owens, Marvin Olasky, Jim Wall, Clarence Glover, William Miller, Robert Bellah, Randall Tobias, William Enright, John Mutz, Max Stackhouse, and Mitch Daniels, among many others. In keeping with the Petticrew Faith-in-Action tradition, discussion of a wide range of views, as well as mutual respect, are encouraged for the sake of greater understanding and the common good.
