From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Southern Evangelical Seminary is a Christian college in Matthews, North Carolina near Charlotte. The seminary was established in 1992 by Dr. Norman Geisler, a Christian apologist and theologian, and Ross Rhoads, former pastor of Calvary Church and currently the chaplain of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). The college was established in 2004.

Southern Evangelical is accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools and has Associate Membership status with the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.[1][2] SES has also been a member organization of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability since 1999.[3]

In 2006 evangelist-apologist Alex McFarland became Southern Evangelical Seminary's third president. A graduate of Liberty University, McFarland earned a B.S. and M.A. in Christian Thought/Apologetics and was awarded an honorary D.Div. from Southern Evangelical in May 2006. Alex has been in full-time Christian ministry since 1989, and has been traveling as an apologetics-based evangelist since 1996 (speaking in all 50 states and at well over 400 venues over the last ten years).
