I’ve never met a minister who completed a theologically rich and practically helpful degree at a seminary who regretted it. They probably exist, I just don’t know them. I’ve met far too many who regret later in life the failure to prioritize theological education while young. I’ve also met some who threw a lot of money down a rat hole to get a degree that was neither theologically and biblically rich or helpful in applying what they learned in a church.
That’s why I love teaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. We get what doesn’t change: an inerrant Bible, the Great Commission, and the value of the local church, for instance. We also get now, and seek to teach ministry useful in a changing world. That’s why I’m happy today to let you know of a great offer for those of you who have put off earning your degree. The month of May we are waiving the application fee for our M.Div. You can apply here, and use the code “MDivMay.”
If that’s not enough to convince you, check out this video my colleague and co-author George Robinson and I did a while back. Get you some learnin’ and get your life wrecked!
