the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Student Life

The purpose of Student Life at Southern

is to encourage, equip, and care for the students of Southern Seminary outside the classroom. We accomplish this purpose by providing opportunities for students to grow as gospel laborers, engage the seminary community, and invest in the lives of others during their time here. We also provide help and care alongside students’ local churches in times of crisis.

What is The 1937 Project?

The 1937 Project is an outreach project in which the entire seminary community comes together for one day to serve the city of Louisville. The name “The 1937 Project” was chosen for the purpose of remembering and honoring Southern Seminary’s critical role of service in the aftermath of the Great Flood of 1937.

During the flood, Southern Seminary students and faculty played a critical role in assisting the city of Louisville in a time of need. Seminary buildings were used to house flood victims and orphans, and the city mayor’s office used the President’s office for an extended period of time to conduct operations. On April 26, 2014, The 1937 Project volunteers will flood the streets of Louisville performing acts of service and sharing their faith throughout the city.

Times and Location:

Sign-in/Registration will begin at 8am in Heritage Hall.  Breakfast lines will open soon after, followed by a brief send-off rally led by the 1937 Project Team.
