The Southeastern Center for Pastoral Leadership and Preaching exists to equip and encourage pastors to lead healthy, disciple-making churches for the glory of God around the world. The Center represents an intentional bridge between the seminary and the local church.

At Southeastern, we believe leadership and ministry skills development are responsibilities of discipleship and thus should be an intentional part of every local church ministry. Through the Center for Pastoral Leadership and Preaching, we offer assistance, resources, and training to our students, as well as to pastors and churches, to further equip them to serve well in the crucible of real life ministry.

We ask vital questions such as: Who should a pastor be? What should a pastor know? What should a pastor be able to do? We seek to accomplish our purpose and answer these questions through four major areas of training and ministry described in further detail on this site:

  1. Ministry to Pastors & Churches
  2. Ministry Preparation & Continuing Education for Pastors & Churches
  3. Field Based Training for Pastors & Churches
  4. Research & Writing for Pastors & Churches

We look forward to serving you!
