The CGCS Blog

Blog Style Guide & Submissions

INTERESTED IN WRITING FOR US?

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.

Some possible topics we could currently use would be those that delve into ideas such as art, music, and culture and how they connect to those three topics above. We could also use more content related to specific people groups, research, and stories or lessons from those on the field.

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.

HOW TO SUBMIT ARTICLES FOR CONSIDERATION:

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

BLOG STYLE GUIDE

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.

Content

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