Bio

Jason Fowler comes to Southeastern with a proven record as a top-shelf librarian and is known especially for fostering a customer-friendly environment for potential library users and researchers. He previously served at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary as acting library director and associate librarian for research services and archivist. Fowler is a graduate of North Greenville University, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and University of Kentucky. He is also a certified archivist with the Academy of Certified Archivists and is a member of several professional associations including the American Library Association, the American Theological Library Association and the Association of Librarians and Archivists at Baptist Institutions. He is married to Dawn and has one son, Russell.

 

The Abstract of Principles has served as a guiding document since Southeastern’s founding. In April 2001, Trustees revised the institutional bylaws to include the 2000 revision of the Baptist Faith and Message along with the Abstract of Principles as the official articles of faith for the school. Since then, faculty have been asked to state in writing that these documents represent their personal beliefs without mental hesitation or reservation and they committed themselves to teach in accordance with and not contrary to these statements of faith.

In addition to the articles of faith, Southeastern further recognizes two documents that clarify beliefs on critical issues. The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy reflects Southeastern’s commitment to biblical authority. The Danvers Statement on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood addresses the issue of biblical manhood and womanhood. These documents serve as guidelines and affirmations of convictions and beliefs that are already expressed in Southeastern’s statement of faith. Members of the Faculty commit to teach in accordance with and not contrary to the doctrines expressed in these documents.

The faculty of Southeastern published the booklet, “Here we stand! This We Believe!” to introduce the statements of faith signed by the faculty and the affirmation statements endorsed by the faculty. The fifth document in the booklet is the Nashville Statement, which is not a formally recognized document of the school but expresses the position of the school on gender and sexuality.
