the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Sesquicentennial Pavilion


Southern Seminary’s new “front door” is scheduled to open in the spring 2009. It will add not only a striking new visual element to the campus, but also help instruct visitors about our history and mission.

  • 12,000 square feet
  • Dramatic dome visible across campus
  • New Admissions Office
  • New Event Productions Office
  • Seminary Concierge
  • Presentation theater and historical timeline that will introduce Southern Seminary

Lexington Road

If you’re not careful, you could almost pass the entrance to Southern Seminary without realizing it. That’s why we’re building a new feature off Lexington Road that will help guide visitors to our campus.

  • Tower and gatehouse with brick walls displaying seminary name
  • Focal point for entrance to the seminary
  • One-way traffic to help manage flow
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
