Study Tips

I believe I speak for more than myself when I say last semester was rough, and if I wasn’t organized, I fell behind after one week. With the start of a new semester, you may be asking yourself how you can prepare? Here are some tips that will help you start of this year right and keep you ahead.

Compile your Syllabuses (Syllabi)

Most of your classes should have a syllabus uploaded by now. If they haven’t, keep checking! There are several ways to compile your assignments: Excel, Word doc, calendar, etc. I personally use an Excel spreadsheet, and check off my assignments as soon as they’re done.… Read More...

10 Goals for Growth in 2018


Every new year is an opportunity for growth, both personally for you and corporately for your church.  I encourage you to adopt these goals to be a healthy leader of God’s church in 2018.[i]

  1. I will read through the Bible this year. Start this new year by following a workable Bible reading plan, perhaps one found under “Bible Study Tools” at com.
  2. I will pray every day with my spouse and family. Church leaders who really pray begin by praying with those that matter most—their family.
  3. I will memorize at least one scripture verse each week.

Why Should I Play Intramural Sports?

Sometimes the games that we love bring out characteristics that go against Christ and his Kingdom. Whether it is comparison, pride, or greed it is very easy to let these vices control us as we “play to win the game.” For most of my life I was comparing my performance to another person’s or playing with a “win at all costs” mentality. It was not until my junior year of college that I realized that I was playing for all the wrong reasons, and I noticed this while playing intramural sports.

Intramural sports are an outlet for us to compete for the glory of God and not our own glory.… Read More...

Being a Good Student Between Semesters

In the midst of the semester, students are focused on their studies, grades, and strategies for improvement. Breaks between semesters, on the other hand, are often seen as breaks from being a student. But in the same way that we never stop learning, we don’t stop being students just because school’s out for the summer (or winter as the case may be). Here are a couple of simple strategies for being a good student when classes aren’t in session.

First, prepare for the next semester. This is the more boring of the two strategies, but it is helpful. As soon as you have access to the next semester’s course materials, go ahead and get things organized.… Read More...

The Value of Short Term Missions

Here at Southeastern, we believe in short-term missions (STM), and as such, we provide several opportunities throughout the year for students to GO and live out what they are learning in class. Each and every year, Southeastern sends hundreds of students around the world, including multiple STM teams almost every break. You could say short-term missions is a part of the DNA of Southeastern.

Here are five reasons short-term missions are an important part of our students’ education and why you should consider these trips as a part of your experience at Southeastern:

  1. The Great Commission is the responsibility of each local church and Southeastern is charged to train local church leaders.
