the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


The kingdom Jesus inaugurated spoke to the whole person, to spiritual lostness, to physical sickness, to material poverty, to the need for community. A church that joins Jesus in preaching the kingdom will too. A holistic vision of the kingdom of God is what provides the basis for a renewed and biblically informed evangelical public. In other words, what Jesus tells us about the kingdom of God across the pages of Scripture has everything to do with how we live our lives and engage the culture here in the present.

That’s why I’d like to invite you to join Southern Seminary Expeditions on our tour of Washington D.C. It will be a time to consider America’s past, and the ways in which the kingdom of God intersects with the culture and informs how a Christians ought to think about the role of the church and the state. You’ll have an opportunity to hear on-site lectures from experts in theology, ethics, church-state relations, and government.

More than studying government, though, we will also participate in it. Just days after the 2013 Presidential Inauguration and the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, we will arrive to attend March for Life as it celebrates its 40th year pronouncing freedom for the unborn. We would love for you to join us, where we will tour sites, speak with dignitaries and special guests, and learn to pray anew for the mercy of Jesus Christ.
