The Lewis A. Drummond Center for Great Commission Studies is the heart of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. Our goal is to serve Christians, local churches, and Christian leaders by engaging  with issues and ideas that affect how we obey Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. We are committed to the task of training and equipping every believer to engage in God’s mission.

We are located in the Jacumin-Simpson Missions Building on Southeastern's campus.
