The 1937 Project is a campus-wide service project in which the entire Boyce College and SBTS community partner together with the Mayor’s Office to serve the city of Louisville. The name, “1937 Project” was chosen for the purpose of remembering and honoring Southern Seminary’s critical role of service in the aftermath of the Great Flood of 1937.
During the flood, Southern Seminary students and faculty played a critical role in assisting the city of Louisville in a time of need. Seminary buildings were used to house flood victims and orphans, and the City Mayor’s Office conducted operations from Southern Seminary’s President’s Office for an extended period of time.
Join us on April 22 as 1937 Project volunteers flood the streets of Louisville, performing acts of service and sharing the gospel throughout the city.
