Purpose: To display and develop the songwriting gifts of Southeastern students as they create songs expressing the mission of Southeastern.
Southeastern Mission Statements:
- Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary seeks to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by equipping students to serve the Church and fulfill the Great Commission.
- The College at Southeastern equips students to give their lives for the cause of Christ, in the Church, among the nations, and in every aspect of society.
- Songs should be original works with lyrics and music written by Southeastern students.
- Any “borrowed” material (music or lyrics) must be in public domain (not under copyright)
- Song lyrics should be in line with the mission and doctrinal commitments of Southeastern Seminary and The College at Southeastern.
