84 seminarians train for disaster relief

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)–Eighty-four students, faculty and staff members from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary attended a disaster relief training session at the seminary’s Recreation Aerobics Center (RAC) Sept. 10.

The training was scheduled so students and staff members could serve with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention disaster relief feeding units in Baton Rouge and New Orleans in accordance with government requirements that all volunteers working in restricted areas affected by Hurricane Katrina be certified.

The SBTC’s Gibbie McMillan, who led the training, told the seminarians, “This is not about you. This is about meeting people’s physical needs. They have lost everything.”

Students from Southwestern Seminary have been granted permission to miss one week of classes in order to work in the Gulf Coast region, Southwestern Seminary Executive Vice President and Provost Craig Blaising said.
