Welcome to Southeastern's Kingdom Diversity webpage. Our desire is to make God's Kingdom vision of people from every tribe, tongue, and nation worshiping Christ together a reality on our campus and in our churches.
Southeastern is convinced that every voice that will sing "holy, holy, holy" at the throne of our God is a voice that needs to be heard on our campus! To that end, the Kingdom Diversity initiative addressed two issues, namely raising the voice of diverse cultures and of women on our campus.
As a Great Commission seminary, Southeastern desires to seek and equip students from every corner of the Kingdom to serve in every context of the Kingdom. Just as "iron sharpens iron," a diverse campus benefits everyone as each person's unique qualities help equip the other to serve wherever our Lord may send us.
Unfortunately strife along the lines of difference has negatively affected our cultural landscape, but by God's grace and by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, God's people are enabled to display His redemptive power by simultaneously embracing and transcending the differences that enrich the tapestry of the Kingdom.
Every blessing in Christ,
Walter R. Strickland II
