Francis A. Schaeffer impacted countless lives through his ministry and has had an enduring influence upon the way Christians think and live in the world today. There is still much to be learned from Schaeffer, and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) seeks to serve the Church by providing unsurpassed opportunities and resources to support the study his life, work, and ideas.
