The Lewis A. Drummond Center for Great Commission Studies (CGCS) is the hub of Southeastern's Great Commission efforts, helping develop students and faculty members who are Great Commission servants of their local churches. The CGCS serves the Southeastern community in four major areas: academics, research, mobilization, and convention relationships.
Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary seeks to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the Church and fulfill the Great Commission.

Field Experience Credit
We do not just train missionaries to go to the field, but missionaries who have been on the field already. In many cases, that field experience will count as credit twoard a degree at Southeastern.
