The Story of the 1937 Project

In 1937, the Ohio River flooded the city of Louisville and caused massive devastation. Southern Seminary was on high ground, and thus had a unique position to help, rowing out in boats to help stranded people, housing individuals on campus, and even providing temporary office space for the mayor. In honor of that historic event, every year Southern Seminary serves the city of Louisville by partnering with the mayor’s office in an event called the 1937 Project.

Partnership with the Mayor

Partnership with the Mayor

“[Give A Day Week] is not just a civic program, but also a spiritual program for our city and that is why it is so, so appropriate that Southern Seminary is right at the center of it.”

“This has been a beautiful partnership between the seminary and the city. The city’s history will be forever wedded to this seminary.”

– Mayor Greg Fischer –
