The Mentorship Program is designed to mentor a small number of students interested in thinking critically about crucial cultural issues in light of biblical Christianity. The format examines different areas of culture to identify basic assumptions, beliefs and values that give shape to the prevailing ideas and practices of Western culture.
Each year, the Mentorship Program studies a different topic. Recent themes include faith and work, the arts, science and more.
The group meets twice per month with Dr. Kenneth Keathley and other guest speakers for thought-provoking discussions and fascinating group trips. Group members will also have assignments including short selected readings, questions for discussion and/or selected subjects for research.
Normally, those gatherings would take place in person, but we will take every precaution necessary given the realities of COVID-19. You can tentatively expect virtual gatherings this fall.
The program begins in Fall semester and goes through Spring semester.
Here’s just a taste of what previous mentorship members have experienced:
- Mentorship meetings at Dr. Ken Keathley’s home.
- A close-knit learning community.
- Fascinating guest speakers.
- Free books.
- Group trips to locations relevant to the year’s mentorship theme.
“Of all the things that I’ve been blessed by at Southeastern Seminary, the Mentorship Program ranks near the top. It’s one thing to have resources and content made available to you; it’s another to be invited into a professor’s home for a meal and hear from people who engage day-to-day in the very topics you are reading and discussing about. I’d recommend this program to any of my fellow classmates. It was informative, and it enriched my life.”

“Not only have we been able to interact with insightful texts, but we’ve been able to discuss these crucial topics with some great minds. It’s been wonderful getting to speak with and hear more from Dr. Keathley on all these subjects and share meals with new friends.”
— Tami Gomez
