The Most Trusted Name in Theological Education

Trust. It's something that's earned. It doesn't come quickly. It's the result of being time tested. When the trustworthiness of God's Word was being challenged, we stood for truth. We place our trust on the truth that endures.

Why Support Southern Seminary and Boyce College?

Southern Seminary and Boyce College are thankful for the generous contributions received from Southern Baptists through the Cooperative Program and the generosity of a multitude of individual donors who give directly to the institution.

Through these vital partnerships, we are able to offer a high-quality theological education that is affordable and accessible to students from all 50 states and more than 70 countries around the world.

  • All cash gifts are deposited into the Southern Fund which serves our students by reducing the amount of tuition we charge each academic year. This enables our students to receive the best theological training from our esteemed faculty at a remarkably affordable cost. In turn, our students graduate fully prepared to serve in the ministry God has for them unencumbered by student debt.
  • Southern Seminary and Boyce College receive no funds from the U.S. Department of Education, the Federal Pell Grant program, Title IV Financial Aid, or any other federal or state financial aid programs.
  • The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit institution. Contributions are tax-deductible.
