LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) – The new graduates of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary have the same task as that of the shepherds who appear in the story of Jesus’ birth: to proclaim that the Savior of the world has come, seminary president R. Albert Mohler Jr. told fall 2020 graduates in a video message. Due to pandemic-related restrictions, there was no in-person commencement ceremony.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) – The board of trustees of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary unanimously voted Monday (Oct. 12) not to remove the names of the school’s founders from several campus buildings. But trustees embraced steps to lament the institution’s racial history, vacating an endowed chair named after an especially controversial 19th-century benefactor and providing up to $5 million in scholarships for African American students over the next few years.
The 2020 fall semester is a precious gift from God, Mohler tells SBTS students; MBTS holds convocation in new normal.
