Announcing Southeastern Partner Day 

2017 Southeastern Offering from Steve Berry on Vimeo.

The need for Christian workers, pastors, teachers, missionaries, musicians and Christian business people has never been greater. President Marcum is declaring March 26th, 2017 as Southeastern Partner Day. The call is going out to all of our Southeastern Partnering Churches to rally behind this effort and help us raise a “Victory Offering” of $200,000 on March 26th, 2017. The goal is for our 150+ partnering churches to average an offering of $1,333. These churches will be supplied with coin banks and promotional posters to help them promote the event at their church.

Monday, April 10th, 2017, during our Spring Conference, will be a night to honor our partnering churches and pastors. Each of these church pastors present will be honored with a gift, presented by our Board of Director’s members. Southeastern’s successes have always been an extension of our partnering churches. This night we will receive the “Victory Offering.”  Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 will be an opportunity for any and all last minute partners who want to donate online to be included in the Tuesday night’s “Victory Offering” announcement total. By God’s grace and His people’s generosity, we can reach our goal of $200,000. This “Victory Offering” is instrumental in the support of our annual fund and our ongoing accreditation expenses. Please consider sharing in this momentous offering.

Happy Thanksgiving from Southeastern

Yesterday, during the annual Thanksgiving chapel service, the students and staff shared sweet testimonies of God’s goodness.  Professor Susan Denton shared a video with everyone in attendance.  President Marcum wanted to share it with the entire Southeastern family.  May God bless you this Thanksgiving.

 

Southeastern had a very exciting weekend with our annual Tip-Off Tournament this past Thursday-Saturday.

Twelve teams from six Christian schools with their sponsors were in attendance. The schools were Faith Christian Academy from Goldsboro, NC, Gateway Christian Academy from Virginia Beach, VA, Great Bridge Christian Academy from Chesapeake, VA, Hilltop Christian School from Fuquay-Varina, NC, Maranatha Christian School from Florence, SC and New Bern Christian Academy from New Bern, NC. Four of the school teams and sponsors were able to attend our chapel service on Friday morning.

The main purpose for our Tip-Off Tournament is to expose students to Southeastern, get them on our campus and hopefully in return, get some of those students to commit to come to Southeastern.

A part of every believer’s day should be spent in thanking God for His bountiful blessings. We at Southeastern Free Will Baptist College feel that we have been especially blessed. Our first blessing is in relation to how God has enabled us to train and send so many Christian workers into the local church. Now, that special group of Southeastern alumni are training and sending workers who have a heart “To Know Him and To Make Him Known.”

On behalf of President Marcum, the Board of Directors, the Faculty and Staff, and the Student Body, we say THANK YOU for all you have done and all you will do. Your love, prayers, and donations continue to reap a harvest through the ministry of our students and alumni.  We all send our love back to you on this Thanksgiving!

 

 

 

 

One week ago today 110 high school students arrived on Southeastern’s campus to experience three days of All Access Days.  All Access Days is a time twice a year when high school students are invited to come on campus and experience college life.

Our hope is that many of these students will find belonging and a future for themselves at Southeastern.

Southeastern’s First Lay-leader Church Music Conference

Southeastern’s mission is to train students for church-related ministries. That purpose is born from a belief in the importance of the local church.  Sensing that burden for the local church and its lay leaders, Southeastern has been evaluating how we can better serve the local church.

On Friday, Jan. 27th – Sunday, Jan. 29th, 2017, the Southeastern Music Department is pleased to offer our first Music Enrichment Conference for Lay-leaders. Send your music ministry team members to be revitalized and equipped with ideas to bring back to your church. It will begin on Friday and conclude Sunday afternoon. Your team will be able to see much of what they have learned applied in Faith FWB’s Sunday morning service.

Southeastern’s Spring Conference 2017 (Road to Revival)

Do you love biblical preaching and great Christian music? Make plans to attend “Road to Revival” Southeastern’s Spring Preaching Conference.  Every year, hundreds of Christians gather on the campus of Southeastern Free Will Baptist College for an encouraging week of strong biblical preaching and Christ-centered, uplifting music.

Monday morning pastors and guests will welcome 300+ high school students to hear Gene Williams and Ron Davis preach God’s Word.

Monday night will be a night to honor our partnering pastors and churches with a gift and then hear one of our favorite preachers, Curtis Linton.

Tuesday morning will begin with great preaching followed by an important Cooperating Board meeting.

Tuesday afternoon continues a long-time tradition of an alumni luncheon for all alumni, their families, and current and past faculty.

Tuesday evening is the annual alumni choir concert when the alumni join the 2016 student choir.  Then, Jeff Jones will bring the final message. If you have never attended our preaching conference, you owe it to yourself to come experience what God is doing here at Southeastern. We would be honored to have you and your family.
