The University of Indianapolis has hosted the annual Showers Lectures in Christian Religion since 1962. Dr. J. Balmer Showers, a bishop of the Evangelical United Brethren Church, established the lecture series with an endowment gift to the University of Indianapolis. The lectures commemorate the service of Bishop Showers in Christian endeavors. His career included ministerial work in Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Ohio, education duties as a professor at Bonebrake Seminary (now United Theological Seminary), and publications work with the official E.U.B. journal, The Religious Telescope.
