Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary opened its doors in 1950 with a relative handful of students and a mandate to train ministers for churches all over the east coast of the United States. In the nearly sixty years since then our student body has grown considerably and our reach has expanded across the entire globe, but at heart Southeastern remains a place that trains Great Commission-minded ministers of the Gospel.
In the case of Southeastern, “minister” does not just mean pastor. While Southeastern equips young men for pastoral ministry, we also equip missionaries, counselors, teachers, youth pastors, and more who spread the Gospel across the street and around the world. We train them across 38 different programs with degrees ranging from Associate of Divinity to Doctor of Philosophy, including our flagship degree, the Master of Divinity.
Consider joining us at Southeastern, where our mission is “to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission."
