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.

On September 9, 2011, Dr. Bruce Ashford, Associate Professor of Theology and Culture, Dean of the College at Southeastern and a Fellow at the Center for Faith and Culture kicked off the Center's fall 2011 event schedule with an invigorating lecture on Christianity and culture. Contending that "the biblical narrative makes clear that culture and cultural engagement are instrinsically involved in our [the Church's] mission," Ashford urged attendees to first understand that everything exists under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Then, he exhorted listeners to live and to encourage other Christians to live in light of this reality.
