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.

Upcoming Events


February 7 | 7-9pm

Taking time to rest can be a challenge in any stage of life, whether you’re a student, wife, mom or any combination of the three. When adding in the challenges of day-to-day ministry, times of physical rest and spiritual refreshment can be elusive.

The Koinonia Team would like to invite you to experience some relaxing fellowship with us at our event, Life at Rest. Join us in Heritage Hall, where you’ll have the opportunity to participate in spa night activities and contribute to a small service project that will bless other women in the Louisville community. As always, fun snacks and door prizes will be included.

Contact Allie Klein at with any questions.


Life & Lessons in Disability Ministry

February 10 | 6:30-8:30pm

We are thrilled to host Joni Eareckson Tada & Ken Tada of Joni and Friends International Disability Center for our annual Student Life conference. Each Student Life conference is designed to build into the lives of seminary students and their families as they prepare for ministry. We seek to provide biblical instruction in key aspects of discipleship. One key, yet often overlooked area of discipleship, is ministry to the disabled.

Join us in Alumni Chapel as Joni & Ken train us how to both care for those who are disabled inside the church and evangelistically engage the disabled outside the church.

The evening is free to students, staff, faculty and their families within the Boyce College & SBTS community. If you would like to register your child[ren] for childcare, you may do so here.

February 11 | 11am - 2pm

Equip: Practical Training for Women in Ministry seeks to take theological education and apply it to everyday ministry experiences. This spring’s Equip will focus on a key, yet often overlooked, area of discipleship: ministry to the disabled. Join us in Alumni Chapel to hear Joni Eareckson Tada teach ladies how to think biblically about suffering and disability, how to give hope to the suffering, and how to practically care for the disabled inside and outside the church.

Female students and student spouses in the Boyce College & SBTS community may use their conference scholarship to attend Equip for free. To use your conference scholarship to attend Equip, simply take your Shield Card to the Event Productions Office (Honeycutt 204). Friends of the seminary may register below.

1937 Project

April 22 | 8am - Noon

The 1937 Project is a campus-wide service project in which the entire Boyce College and SBTS community partner together with the Mayor’s Office to serve the city of Louisville. The name, “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.

Last year, over 400 volunteers in the Boyce College & SBTS community served at 23 project sites throughout the city. Make plans to join us on Saturday, April 22 as we flood the streets of Louisville, performing acts of service and sharing the gospel throughout the city.
