Angel Jimenez, an ambassador for admissions and the Kingdom Diversity Initiative, shares a brief history and description of Asian Heritage Month:
May 10th, 1869 marks a great day in U.S. history. The transcontinental railroad was completed which placed the country in an unprecedented success. Not only could people travel coast to coast in a week, but cargo of all types were now reaching areas that had been closed off to the rest of the nation. Businesses and the economy boomed as this great engineering feat transformed the country. Goods were not the only thing to travel across the rails; intellect and ideology also traveled to new parts of the country, ideology that would help shape the future of the nation.… Read More...
One of the many ways that our student body is blessed is through Southeastern’s Auxiliary Ministry, The Share Shop. Students fill the Share Shop with household items and clothing than they need to give away, and in turn, are able to shop for free. From coffee mugs, to lamp shades, to shoes and clothes for all ages, the Share Shop is an invaluable part of the Southeastern family.
The Share Shop is open weekly on Tuesday from 5-8pm, Wednesdays from 10am-1pm, and Saturdays from 9am-1pm. Donation hours are Monday – Saturday from 8am-8pm, unless offices are closed. You can find the Share Shop at 100/102 Hipps Drive, right across from Wake Forest High School.… Read More...

Psalm 99:4 says “The King in his might loves justice.” We serve a God who loves justice, and as his children we are called to see that justice on earth. With 35.8 million men, women and children unjustly bound by slavery across the globe, the Church cannot simply sit back in ignorant bliss.
With this conviction heavy on their hearts, the Student Life Office at Southeastern decided to provide students with an opportunity to learn about human trafficking and actually do something about it through their gifts and prayers. Coinciding with the heartbeat of Southeastern to bring the gospel to people both near and far, the Student Life Office decided to support two organizations that are on the front lines of the fight against human trafficking both locally, through JusticeMatters, and abroad, through the International Justice Mission.

Is Christ worth leaving everything?
This is the question Chris and Hannah Castorena were asking themselves just over a year ago as they considered the implications of the Lord calling them to the nations.
Having met in Baptist Student Ministry during their undergrad career, the Castorenas had developed a comfortable life for themselves in their home state of Texas. Chris was serving at a local church doing college ministry part time while also serving as an intern with their campus ministry.
“God was really blessing our ministry there,” added Chris.But in December 2013, while attending the CROSS conference in Louisville, Kentucky with their students, Chris and Hannah’s hearts were turned to the international mission field in a way they couldn’t simply ignore.

For a man whose blond tips stand out amongst a crowd and who claims that his favorite color is “bright,” Dr. Stephen Eccher’s stylistic preferences aren’t the only thing that he’s bold about. After sitting down with him this week, three major things became incredibly evident about Dr. Eccher.
1. He’s passionate about the local church.
As a proud members of Open Door Church, Dr. Eccher challenges students to “take very, very seriously their involvement and membership in the local church.”
“Without that, we get lost here,” Eccher added. “If we study history, theology, philosophy, ethics, etc., and if those things remain confined to theory and head knowledge, it is of no benefit either to the Kingdom or to ourselves.”
“When you find a local church, be committed to it, love it,” urged Eccher.

Just two years ago, Sean Robinson made the move to Southeastern to begin working on his MDiv in Missiology. Since then, he has woven himself into several key roles on campus: he’s a Campus Ambassador, a Resident Assistant, this year’s GenSend Campus Mobilizer, and a member of the Kingdom Diversity committee. Robinson’s passion and purpose are clear: he’s a man eager to make disciples wherever he goes.
What brought you here to Southeastern?
Well, I love missions, partly because of what my Dad does — he’s been doing missions for 40 something years now. As I was sharing my desire to study missions with one of his friends who is a missionary in Thailand, she said, “If you want to study missions, there’s no better place to go than Southeastern.” So, I came down here for Preview Day with my dad, and just through that visit and seeing the heart for the Great Commission here, I was sold.… Read More...
His face, familiar. His smile, sincere. His gentle spirit, evident to all he meets. Without his diligence, Southeastern would surely be a mess.
Who is he? Well, he’s Mr. Eugene, of course.
