Student Activity Groups

Student activity groups at Southeastern help encourage spiritual growth and promote fellowship for the college community. They also aid students in gaining knowledge and skills that will help prepare them for ministry. Each activity group is committed to being a godly example of fellowship and love, to nurturing and training members to be Christian examples in all that they do and to following the moral and ethical guidelines found in Scripture as interpreted in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and the Student Handbook.

Current Student Groups

Do you enjoy movies? Do you also enjoy engaging others in conversations about movies and their particular worldviews? Faith & Film is a Student Group designed to provide such a forum where you can enjoy movies, explore their meaning and evaluate their message in light of the Gospel in order to engage the culture. The group will meet throughout the semester to watch various influential movies and discuss their worldviews. Members of the group will be committed to regular attendance, edifying dialogue with one another and growing in their ability to engage the culture (in personal evangelism, writing reviews, etc.) Members of the group will also have the privilege (and are encouraged) to contribute to the Faith & Film website ( So, if you are interested in enjoying and evaluating films within a community of believers in order to engage our culture, please email Brandon Terry for more information at

International Justice Mission (IJM) seeks to equip students to fulfill the Great Commission by means of seeking justice and the good of the people in this city. Seeking to connect students to local organizations and ministries working to aid the poor, homeless, orphaned, trafficked and foreign refugees in the spirit of the Lord, IJM believes that as students study the Word of God at the college, they must also take time to give in doing justice outside the classroom. What good is education if it does not shape hearts and lives today? IJM equips students to practice the more important matters of the Law as Jesus said in Matthew 23:23. "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices - mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law - justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former."

Southeastern's IJM is an official chapter of International Justice Mission
