The Great Commission Race is an annual race in Louisville, Kentucky, hosted by the Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. This race unites the city of Louisville and Southern’s campus to work towards the seminary’s goals in fitness, fellowship, and fundraising for missions.

All proceeds and donations benefit students participating in mission trips with Southern Seminary. Every year the Bevin Center coordinates several national and international mission trips with an emphasis on cross-cultural evangelism, discipleship, and service in accord with the Great Commission.

The Bevin Center

Brittiney Bevin’s heart ached for the lost and the down-trodden. It is because of her prayer and zeal that The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary opened The Bevin Center for Missions Mobilization. The Bevin center offers many opportunities for short-term mission trips to places such as:

-Latin America
-The Middle East
-And many others both locally and across the globe which can be viewed and signed up for here.

“You hold the only peace that can fill the deepest hole. But how do I get it? You said, ‘Ask and you shall receive.’ I am asking and I know that you will give it to me. Every week you bless me so much and teach me lessons after lessons. I know that once again you are showing me your love. I can’t fathom how much you feel when one of your children suffers, but I’ve had a glimpse of your heartache. Please fill me with your wisdom that I won’t just watch others suffer, but that I’ll be able to say what they need to hear. As a new week approaches, my dangerous prayer is that you’ll place broken hearted people in my path and fill me with you so that I can let your love heal their pain.” – Prayer of Brittiney Bevin
