Dr. Hantla is Associate Professor of Education and Associate Dean of the College at Southeastern. He leads the Dual Enrollment Academy, oversees Institutional Effectiveness for the College, and is Director of the college’s secondary educational licensure programs. Dr. Hantla is passionate about teaching and learning from a Christian worldview and helping others find their calling in the educational ministry. Dr. Hantla served for seven years in Houston, TX, at the College of Biblical Studies-Houston, ending his time as Academic Dean. Before teaching at the college-level, Dr. Hantla taught sixth grade and ninth grade English language arts in the Wake County Public School system. Bryce is married to the love of his life, Katie, and they have four children, two daughters and two sons. Their family enjoys exercising, walking their dog, running obstacle courses, and relaxing.


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.
