the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The 1892 Club provides a dedicated space and time to develop relationships and mentoring within our PhD community through a formal program and open times for fellowship. It is open to all current PhD students at SBTS, across all schools, departments, and stages of the program, in addition to all professors. If you are in one of these groups, you’re already a member of The 1892 Club!

The 1892 Club meets most Wednesday afternoons during term time.  It consists of two elements, which are on either side of the PhD Colloquia:
