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.


Student Care

Single or married, a student or a spouse of a student, life in seminary can be challenging. The Student Life Office provides personal discipleship-oriented care and support for students.
