Between the Times is the officially faculty blog of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Southeatern exists first and foremost to serve the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention. Our professors are not freelance academics, but rather are denominational servants who have a heart for local churches. Most of our faculty members have at one time or other served as pastors, missionaries, or other ministry leaders. Virtually all of us currently serve our local churches as pastors (or interim pastors), ministerial staff, deacons, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, etc. Many of us also frequently preach or teach itinerantly in local SBC churches. We know the same could be said of all of our sister seminaries.
Because we are denominational servants, we want to write about issues that are relevant to “real life” ministry in general and local churches in particular. To that end, we are seeking your input. We know the majority of our readers are pastors, other paid church staff, foreign missionaries, church planters, or students preparing for one of these ministries. We want to know what topics you think we should write about, especially at Between the Times. (Though we also welcome suggestions about topics we should write about in other media like books and print articles.) In addition to our regular contributors, we have dozens of other gifted faculty members who are well equipped to write about any number of topics. How can we best serve you and your church through this blog?
We want to invite you to leave a comment and make some suggestions. The more specific you can be in your suggestions, the better. We look forward to hearing from you and, Lord willing, crafting some future articles in response to your suggestions. Thanks for reading this blog, and thanks in advance for your thoughts about what we should write about in the days to come.
