Sending missionariesSouthern Seminary is known for taking the gospel to the nations.  Dynamic course offerings are provided in missions, cross-cultural ministry, cultural anthropology, Islamic studies, and Arabic language.  Through a monthly luncheon event called Global Connections, students interact with missionary practitioners, connect the dots between classroom and the mission field, and learn ways to effectively prepare for overseas service. For students desiring to serve through the International Mission Board (SBC), an IMB representative is on campus to help guide them in the preparation and application process.
