The CGCS Blog

Blog Style Guide & Submissions


The CGCS blog is an extension of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Our center exists to mobilize and equip students, faculty, staff, and beyond in the fulfillment of the Great Commission. While the our blog ranges in topics, most articles center upon missions, evangelism, and discipleship.

If you passionate about the Great Commission and believe your work may be a good fit for the CGCS blog, please carefully read through our submission requirements and guidelines before filling out the submission form below. Please also read over our confessional statements to ensure that you have the same convictions and beliefs as our institution.


Submit your article, a bio, headshot, and social media handles to Meridith Graves ([email protected]).
Meridith will edit and return the article to you.
Afterwards, your post will be considered for publication.


The Center for Great Commission is the hub of missionary mobilization at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. The CGCS exists to mobilize and equip students, faculty, staff, and the broader Christian community in the fulfillment of the Great Commission, and our blog is one way we strive to accomplish this. Here are some brief details to guide you:

Style Guide, at a Glance

  • Be brief. Aim for 800-1000 words.

  • Be conversational. Write to everyday Christians, from the pulpit to the pew.

  • Be “you-focused.” Focus on your readers, and use personal pronouns.

  • Be polished. Proofread, self-edit and revise your draft prior to submission.


  • Your article should relate to missions, evangelism, discipleship, church-planting, replanting, etc.

  • Don’t feel like you must deliver groundbreaking research. Instead, offer bite-sized thoughtful reflections. Share lessons you’ve learned. Comment on a current event. Make a top five list. Chase rabbits. The key point is to offer a missional lens through which to see our world

  • Since the CGCS is a blog of Southeastern Seminary, our content must be consistent with Southeastern Seminary’s confessional documents and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
