This is a school that understands the sacrifice that our freedom cost Jesus.  As a result, they want to recognize the warriors that have sacrificed for our country. At Southeastern you will find students with a sincere desire to change the world and faculty who are passionate about the Great Commission.  Together they make Southeastern the ideal training environment for future leaders in Jesus’ kingdom.”    -Jeff Struecker
