Our appreciation goes out to these fine students for their hard work on making the Dean’s List. Congratulations!

WENDELL, NC- It is with great appreciation and sadness that we are announcing the resignation of Mrs. Ericka Pettit (95’) effective December 13, 2019. For the last three and a half years, Ericka has served as a faithful, dedicated faculty member teaching piano, music theory, sight-singing, and was the accompanist for the Sounds of Victory choir. Mrs. Terri Siebert, Ericka’s mom, and former long-serving faculty member will serve as our interim piano instructor for the Spring 2020 semester. Also, Sarah Marcum will be the choir rehearsal pianist in addition to her duties as the Promotional Department assistant.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on staff at Southeastern. The college’s mission, ‘To Know Him and To Make Him Known,’ resonates so well with the intention and purpose of my family. I have desired to develop and train leaders for the next generation, not only in musical ability but also whose passion reflects the heart of Christ, which is to reach people where they are for His glory,” Mrs. Pettit said.
President Ange stated, “I have known and observed Ericka since early childhood, and she always exemplifies a humble and Christ-like spirit in her life and service, and she will be greatly missed on our campus.” Marc Holloman added, “Mrs. Pettit has been a tremendous influence among our students, and she has displayed excellence in the classroom and at the piano, all while doing so with humility and grace. Ericka has modeled godly womanhood and true Christian servanthood before us all. I thank her for the time, energy, and dedication that she has devoted to Southeastern.”
Ericka and her husband Matt Pettit (93′) have five children: Alex (19), Blake (17), Brenden (12), Jayden (11), and Luke (9).

Secure Southeastern for the future by making a gift today!

Help us reach our $75,000 matching gift goal today. Please take a moment and make a gift of any amount.

We are thrilled to announce another end of the year challenge. Again, two donors have issued a matching grant challenge. One donor has offered a challenge of $50,000, and the other donor has offered a challenge of $25,000. That’s right! If we can raise $75,000 by the end of the year, your gifts will be matched by $75,000. We intend to designate $75,000 for student scholarships and $75,000 to the annual fund, which will be used for many of the campus renovations you see going on around the campus as well as accreditation expenses.

Because of your response to last year’s end of the year matching grant challenge, we have been able to award $110,295.47 in scholarships to our students. We were also able to extend many more scholarship offerings to students who we were recruiting. Additionally, we were able to renovate all four dormitories with new carpet. Our students absolutely love the fresh look of their rooms. Currently, our maintenance staff is renovating the exterior of the library building. They have begun refurbishing the tennis courts with plans to install one tennis court and two pickleball courts. They also purchased seven used 25 foot, steel light poles with lights and have begun installing lights on the football field, which will allow all kinds of sporting activities to be played at night. The students can hardly wait to play flag football at night!

Please consider a generous end of the year matching gift donation for Southeastern College.  We need your help! We can now receive your gift of highly appreciated stocks and bonds, which you can donate tax-free. If you are not a 20/20 Vision Club Partner, please consider becoming one today.

Those who are 70 ½  and older may make a gift to Southeastern directly from their IRA which will serve to reduce their taxable income.

You may use the enclosed envelope and mail it with your contribution.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me at (919)365-7711 or (321)917-2376 (cell) or sberry@sfwbc.edu.

Thanks for all you do to support Southeastern College!

P.S. I want to cordially invite you to mark your calendars for April 6-7, 2020. Come and join us at this year’s Revive and Rejoice Spring Conference.

On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, sixty golfers representing over fifty-five sponsoring organizations gathered at The Neuse Country Club for a day of fun on the links. The event raised more than $35,000 for the ministry of Southeastern College.

Golfers had great prize opportunities on each par three, which included hole-in-one prizes. While no one took home the beautiful 2019, Kia Optima, which was positioned nicely, overlooking the tee box on hole number 3, many players did take home some terrific prizes. Joe Ange, Jonathan Ange, Lee Powell, and Jim Summerson took first-place and won with a score of 58.

Mike Morris and his Southeastern Cafeteria Team provided an outstanding breakfast followed by ribeye steaks and all the fixings for lunch. The sixty golfers who attended expressed their appreciation for the quality tournament presented. Tournament Director Steve Berry challenged the group to grow the attendance again next year, and he set a goal for 75 golfers and 75 sponsors.

Please mark your calendars for next year’s tournament which is scheduled for Tuesday, October 6, 2020. sfwbc.edu/golf

In ten days, the first ever Youth Aflame North will begin at the Sandhill Free Will Baptist Church in Sandusky, Ohio. Students from Ohio and neighboring states will join together for a week of life-changing preaching from some of the most effective youth preachers in the country. College students who sing in the Sounds of Praise Ensemble from Southeastern Free Will Baptist College will help direct the conference through singing, fellowshipping with students and serving to make the event go smoothly.

THERE IS STILL TIME TO REGISTER YOUR YOUTH!

This year’s theme is “Breakthrough.” Youth today are confronted with constant sinful temptations. It seems that today’s youth are presented with more addictive behaviors than ever before. Addictive behaviors trap youth and thwart their spiritual progress as they search for the call of God on their lives. This year, we are preaching for a breakthrough in all of our lives.

Youth Aflame exists to see a generation of young people be the light of the world. It is a gathering for 7th grade through high school students to come together to worship the name of Jesus. Through preaching, teaching, music, and maybe even some friendly competition here and there, your students will have fun serving the one true God. This is more than just a youth conference. It is a time when students will choose to dedicate their lives to GOD, desire to see HIS presence, and ultimately have a soul on fire for Jesus Christ.  Decisions will be made. Lives will be changed. It is time to light the FLAME.

 

 

 

Noah Taylor will kick off the conference on Monday night. He is the pastor of the Evergreen Free Will Baptist Church in Erwin, Tennessee. A native Oklahoman, he has a wit and humor that students will enjoy during his messages. Having lost his mom early in life gave him many challenges to overcome. Despite these many challenges, he was able to break through and find victory and is today living his dream of touching others for Christ.

 

 

 

Cindy Berry will speak to all the female students in a split session on Wednesday morning. Cindy was born in South Carolina and has had the pleasure of living and serving the Lord in many different states. Her engaging way in sharing how God gave her a spiritual breakthrough as an older teenager will challenge and offer hope to those who hear her.

 

 

 

 

Steve Berry will serve as director of the conference as well as speaking to the guys in a split session on Wednesday morning. Steve was born in West Virginia although he grew up mostly in Virginia. His most significant breakthrough came when he was met by a church bus captain who was visiting in Steve’s neighborhood. After attending church for the second week in a row, Steve trusted Christ, and soon his family began to change as one by one, they too, believed in Jesus as Lord.

 

 

 

Christian Powell is the pastor of Faith Free Will Baptist Church in Goldsboro, NC. Christian has experienced not only personal breakthrough but the breakthrough in the lives of hundreds of teenagers who he ministered to during his many years as the Youth Pastor of Faith Church. He has been used around the country as a favorite camp and youth speaker. Youth seem to bond immediately with Christian seconds after he enters the pulpit.

 

 

Nate Ange serves as the pastor of the Landmark Free Will Baptist Church in Cary, NC and President of Southeastern Free Will Baptist College. Nate is the son of Dr. Joe and Hazel Ange who served the Lord powerfully in the Free Will Baptist movement. Nate has preached over 500 revival meetings and remains one of the favorite preachers of Youth Aflame South. Literally, hundreds of young people have surrendered to the call of God on their lives after listening to Bro. Nate preach.

 

 

 

 

Arron Howard is a native of Erwin, TN and a 2019 graduate of Southeastern Free Will Baptist College. As a pastoral student at Southeastern, Arron had the opportunity to preach to youth around the country. His connection to students is almost instant, and his message is life-changing. While attending public school in Tennessee, Arron committed his life to preaching God’s Word. Today, he is doing precisely that. Arron serves as the recruitment coordinator at Southeastern College.
