Proclaiming the gospel of Jesus
is a non-negotiable for every believer.
It is not a calling for some, it is a commission for all who identify with Christ. At SBTS, you will be saturated with gospel training so that you are fully equipped to present the gospel to anyone, anywhere, at any length.
The skills taught in the classroom will be pressed into instincts by the opportunities to proclaim Christ in the surrounding area. Join with the faculty and staff of SBTS in preaching in a homeless shelter, counseling in a crisis pregnancy center, teaching ESL, street evangelism, serving as a chaplain for local High School sports teams, and many more.
At SBTS your gospel instincts will be shaped as we strive to fulfill
the Great Commission.
