If you’re called to teach the Bible, you need to know the Bible. Theological training is essential to gospel ministry.
For more than 150 years, we have been training men and women for gospel service to the ends of the earth.
Come be our guest and learn first-hand why thousands choose SBTS every year for trusted gospel training.
As you consider Southern Seminary, it is important to us that you get to know the faculty under whom you will study. Preview Day guests will spend extensive time with the “deepest bench” of faculty in theological education. Besides gaining helpful information about degree programs and practical issues, we will worship and pray together as we seek to honor the Lord in our obedience to him.
“The faculty lecture on Jesus as the Teacher-Philosopher was phenomenal, and I could have sat there for hours scribbling away with notes.” – Preview attendee
No doubt you have many questions when counting the cost for seminary, like: “How will I pay for it? What type of employment opportunities exist? How will my family fit into Louisville?” Preview Day is all about answering these questions. You’ll have the chance to hear from staff, students, and employers throughout the day.
“It was wonderful to meet staff and students who previously made the move to Louisville. We felt much more comfortable with the decision to move our family after attending Preview Day.” – Preview attendee
You will take a tour with a well-trained guide to explain the history and heritage of our school, and what it’s like as a student at SBTS. We also realize that housing is at the top of many people’s priority list. For this reason we have optional time for a campus housing tour where you will see different on campus housing options with varying floor plans, locations, and accommodations depending on your needs.
“The campus tour was my favorite part of the day. I could envision myself walking to class in just a few short months.” – Preview attendee
The faculty dinner is a great time for you to enjoy a wonderful meal and converse with faculty, student ambassadors, and other prospective students. After dinner, you’re invited to an informal Q & A time with Dr. Mohler. This time, along with the dessert reception at the Mohlers’ home, allows our President to share some of his personal life and gives great insight into his vision for Southern Seminary.
“My wife and I’s conversation with Dr. York and his wife at the end of the day particularly impacted me, and we left feeling a greater comfort at the prospect of moving to Southern” – Preview attendee
If you’re attending the 2020 Together for the Gospel Conference in Louisville April 14-16, we’d love to host you Friday for SBTS Preview Day. For just $25, we will cover 2 nights of lodging during your stay in Louisville for Preview Day!*
