At Southern Seminary, we recognize the need for God-called
ministers’ wives to be prepared for ministry.
We believe that a minister's wife needs to be educated and equipped as she and her husband prepare for service in the churches and beyond. The time a student wife is in the seminary setting with her husband is the perfect time to undertake this training. She has opportunity to network with other wives who are preparing for the place God has for them. She will benefit from her study with faculty wives who can share from their rich experience.
The courses in the Seminary Wives Institute (SWI) are designed to give ministers' wives biblically based and practically applied teaching. They are taught by our own seminary faculty as well as faculty wives and guest speakers. We are committed to make this institute a vital part of the seminary wife's experience at Southern Seminary.
Each six week SWI class carries a $15 registration fee for current SBTS or Boyce College student wives. Community women are welcome to take most of our classes, with permission. They will be charged $35 per class.
