Southeastern currently has one of the largest number of former journeymen in the world. This means that we have a large number of students with shared experiences who understand the difficulty of transitioning back to life in the US. Because we understand how hard the transition can be, Southeastern and the Center for Great Commission Studies has taken some extraordinary measures to make the process easier. Below are a few of the ways we do that:
- Financial Support: Southeastern provides a financial package for returning journeymen that makes it possible for former journeymen to study at SEBTS 25% of the regular cost of tuition. If you would like to apply for the Returning Journeymen Scholarship, please click here.
- In partnership with the Student Life office we have also developed a supportive community to help returning Journeymen unpack the experiences they’ve had on the field in order to move forward in their call and walk with the Lord. This community includes a SEBTS sponsored student group led by former journeymen and counseling with professional counselors with experience with missionaries. If you are interested in joining the Return Journeymen Student Group, please click here.
- Ministry Opportunities: The Center for Great Commission Studies also partners with local and out of state ministries to provide students with opportunities to get involved in ministry during their time at Southeastern. For a list of some of the ministries we work with, please click here.
If you are a returning Journeymen on campus at Southeastern, please feel free to visit the Center for Great Commission Studies, located in the Missions Building, we would love to meet you!
