Student groups at Southeastern help encourage spiritual growth and promote fellowship for the seminary and college community. They also aid students to gain knowledge and skills that will help prepare for ministry. Each student organization is committed to being a godly example of fellowship and love, to nurture and train members to be Christian examples in all that they do, and to follow the moral and ethical guidelines found in Scripture as interpreted in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000, and the Student Handbook.

List of Current Student Groups

Faith and Film: Do you enjoy movies? Do you also enjoy engaging others in conversations about movies and their particular worldviews? Faith & Film is a Student Group designed to provide such a forum where you can enjoy movies, explore their meaning, and evaluate their message in light of the Gospel in order to engage the culture. The group will meet throughout the semester to watch various influential movies and discuss their worldviews. Members of the group will be committed to regular attendance, edifying dialogue with one another, and growing in their ability to engage the culture (in personal evangelism, writing reviews, etc.) Members of the group will also have the privilege (and are encouraged) to contribute to the Faith & Film website ( So, if you are interested in enjoying and evaluating films within a community of believers in order to engage our culture, please contact Brandon Terry for more information.

International Justice Mission (IJM): IJM is a group of students concerned about issues of injustice who desire to work together as advocates for the oppressed in a world that is suffering. International Justice Mission is looking for you to join us as we use our God given gifts for kingdom building and outreach!

Missionary Formation Society: Do you love missions? Would you like to join hands with other students to serve and pray for the lost? The Missionary Formation Society exists to help you reach your community and the world with the gospel. Join us in serving through missional hands-on projects as well as regular Haystack meetings, which are held on campus to educate students about ways to engage and pray for unreached peoples and workers.

Passion for All Lands (PAL): Do you have a heart for the nations and want to pray for Christians around the world as well as the persecuted church? Come and join PAL for a time of worship and prayer with a global focus.

SEBTS Ph.D. Journal: The SEBTS Ph.D. Journal student group encourages Ph.D. students to work together, really to serve one another, by teaching and learning from one another's specialized fields so as to become well rounded scholars. We strive to accomplish this goal by publishing Inservitus, a yearly journal made up of papers written by SEBTS Ph.D. students. Twice a year we host a meeting where a select number of the published papers will be presented. Thus this student group provides valuable experience to Ph.D. students in publishing their work, presenting papers, and serving on an Editorial Board.

Southeastern Outdoors Club (SOC): Want to explore God's creation and learn how to steward it well? What about how to use the outdoors as a means to spread the Gospel? The SOC seeks to glorify God through the discipleship and stewarding of God's creation.

Southeastern Literary and Arts Magazine (SLAM): SLAM provides a community where students can share creative works of literature, such as poetry and prose, and visual art alongside critical essays. Publishing annually in the Spring, SLAM accepts submissions year round. Intern reader positions are also available. For more information of submitting your work or joining our team, visit our website.
