Story Abstract

Nathan Greene has begun working on "The Great Commission," a painting depicting the mission of all students, for the 2010 senior class.

Story

Contemporary painter Nathan Greene visited Southern in April 2011 to start on the 2010 class gift, a painting titled, “The Great Commission,” which portrays the mission of Christian education: to train students to be servants for Christ.

The painting will depict Jesus leading students dressed in various professional attire into a life of ministry.

“I think the class of 2010 wanted to leave a gift of encouragement to students who are just starting out with their careers,” says Greene.

During his visit, Greene met with 15 Southern students who are serving as models for the painting.

“When I gave my life to God there was a painting of Nathan Greene [in the church]. And I remember as a child seeing his works in lesson books and on transparencies,” says Keishauni George, senior theology major who served as a student model. “To actually be able to meet him was awesome.”

“The Great Commission” will be unveiled during the 2011 Alumni Homecoming Weekend in October. The painting is set to hang in the lobby of Wright Hall.
