Mission & Purpose
The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.
The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.
Ken Keathley serves as Director of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture and Professor of Theology at Southeastern. He holds a B.A. in Bible from Tennessee Temple University, a M.N.S. in Mathematics from Southeast Missouri State University, and both an M.Div. and Ph.D. in Theology from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
A native Missourian, Ken accepted Christ at the age of 17 as the result of attending a revival service, and was called to preach the night he was saved. He has served as Youth Pastor, Interim Pastor or Senior Pastor of churches in Missouri, the Carolinas, Virginia and Louisiana. Before coming to Southeastern to teach, he served two years at Midwestern Baptist Seminary and almost six years New Orleans Baptist Seminary as both an administrator and professor.
Ken has several published articles and books, the most recent of which is Salvation and Sovereignty: A Molinist Approach. He is also a regular contributor to Southeastern's online journal, Between the Times. A complete list of his publications can be found here.
