Southeastern Partner Day 2018
March 25, 2018
We are asking each of our 150+ partnering churches to raise $1,000 for the 2018 Partner Day. Please send your offering on or around March 25, 2018. Below, you can see last year’s promotional video explaining what Southeastern Partner Day is all about. Our goal is to raise $150,000 to help Southeastern finish the Spring semester strong and help us keep on our path toward accreditation.

The Southeastern Family of partnering churches is over 150 churches strong. Our individual partners hover near 1,000. With all the good that Southeastern is doing for the Kingdom of God, now is the time to advance Southeastern’s vision of finding, training and sending workers for church-related ministries. Let’s look at a few reasons why now is the time for a renewed commitment to the mission of Southeastern.
Accreditation in View – On April 25, 2017 Southeastern was approved as a member of TRACS (Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools). TRACS is recognized by both the United States Department of Education (USDOE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as a national institutional accrediting agency for Christian postsecondary institutions, colleges, universities, and seminaries. With Candidate Status, we are officially a member of TRACS and will have up to 5 years to achieve Accredited Status. Our goal is to accomplish this in 3 years.
Need for Workers in the Local Church – Communities across the United States are displaying the signs of post-Christendom. Churches are closing and the positive influence of Christianity in America is waning. Pastors, associate pastors, musicians, teachers and distinctively Christian business folks are needed in the local church to continue touching lives for Jesus Christ. America, which historically has sent out the most missionaries around the world, is declining as a lighthouse for the gospel.
God is Still Calling People to His Service – Currently, Southeastern has 37 men preparing for pastoral ministry. 10 of those 37 students are directing themselves toward missions. Southeastern has 10 students who are preparing to minister through music. 32 students are preparing for elementary and secondary education (teaching in the classroom). Five students are preparing to work in the business world while exemplifying Christian principles through the fundamentals of business. These men and women are excited about the prospect of serving the Lord through the local church.
