Share Shop


The Share Shop is a ministry that strives to support the mission of SEBTS by supplying resources of necessary clothing and household goods at no cost to our seminary community (students, staff, faculty, alumni, and their families). The Share Shop ministry functions solely through the volunteer efforts of our SEBTS community. It provides the opportunity to equip students to serve the church and fulfill the Great Commission through mentoring and discipleship as faculty wives, students, and staff serve and work together.

How Does it Work?

Friends and family of the SEBTS community bring donations during days/times when the Share Shop is open. Volunteers sort, shelve, hang, and display donations for the convenience of our shoppers who can shop during posted shopping days/hours.

What can be donated to the Share Shop?

Acceptable Donations:

  • In-season, clean, gently-ised clothing; shoes; accessories
  • Non-perishable, unexpired, unopened canned or boxed food
  • Household supplies: decor, linens, curtains, towels, bedding, etc...

  • Kitchen supplies: pots, pans, baking, dishes, cooking, etc...
  • Flat screen TVs, laptops, phones (memory wiped and usable)
  • Small appliances (clean and functioning)

Donors who would like to share large items that cannot be received at the Share Shop should post these items on our SEBTS Share Shop Facebook page. The Share Shop Facebook page is an extension of the ministry, designed to allow you to share with each other online without bringing items to the physical shop.

If you have items you wish to sell, please use another page or service for that purpose. The Share Shop is about sharing, not selling.
