"Generous givers who want to instill godly values in the next generation must begin early; that is the only way to ensure that their benefactors will maintain a spiritual 'core' that will protect both the inheritance and themselves."

Secrets of the Generous Life

oursouthernOur Southern Is Your Southern
by Will Carroll, '01

At this time of year we think of giving thanks to God and those close to us. We show our thanks through meaningful gifts to our personal and community family. Southern is an important part of my family. This year I am giving to enhance opportunities for Southern students to build their careers of service within their academic field of study. I believe service learning helps them refine their skills while allowing them to see specific ways they can make a difference in their community for the rest of their lives. Please join me in giving to the Southern Serves Initiative this year.

DirectoryMore Than 1,000 Alumni Come 'Home'

By Evonne Crook

More than 1,000 alumni are estimated to have attended Alumni Homecoming Weekend activities this year.  Pillars of Progress was the theme, which included events celebrating Southern's past and the progress the university has made into the present.  The 60th anniversary of the accreditation of Southern Missionary College as a four-year school and the 40th anniversary of McKee Library provided much of the focus for the theme.

legacysocietyLegacy Society Banquet and
Orchestra Concert on March 13, 2011
savethedateBy Carolyn Liers

The Legacy Society Banquet provides an opportunity to fellowship with others who share a heart for giving, hear from students who benefit from such generosity, and to enjoy the musical talent of Southern's Symphony Orchestra.  The event gives Southern an opportunity to recognize and thank those who support the university through a future legacy gift. 


Your generosity enriches the Southern experience and inspires students to prepare for a higher calling and life of service.  This is what it means to leave a legacy.  Your legacy can provide life-changing opportunities for students at Southern--many of whom you may never meet.  As one student recently stated "you will never know what you have done until we get to heaven."  We hope you will come and other Southern supporters who value Christ-centered education as we celebrate your legacy!


This event is by invitation only.  To learn more about how you can help students at Southern and be a part of this special evening, contact Carolyn Liers at plangive@southern.edu or call 1.800.768.8437.
