Student Life

Student Life supports the mission of Southern Seminary by keeping students alert to their call to work hard for the kingdom while resting in Christ.
We call students to think carefully about worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ in every sphere of their lives.

Clyde T. Francisco Preaching Award

The Clyde T. Francisco Preaching Award honors Professor Francisco’s service among the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention. It was endowed in 1973 for the purpose of encouraging students committed to the ministry of proclamation. The Francisco Award recipient is granted a scholarship and is invited to preach in chapel on April 23.

Students eligible for the award must be currently enrolled in a master’s degree program at Southern Seminary. A calling to the pastorate is required, and leadership ability is expected. All sermon entries are evaluated on the basis of sound scriptural content, structure, and style.

All materials for application and/or nomination should be submitted online by March 13, 2019.
