Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary will arrange and pay for roundtrip airline transportation to the least expensive major airport within a reasonable distance of your church, OR in some cases, roundtrip automobile transportation to your church.
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, including The College at Southwestern, is a multicultural, ethnically diverse family. The preachers in this program reflect this diversity. The program director will assign preachers to churches with the assumption that every applying church is willing to host any one of our preachers without regard to his cultural or ethnic background.
Your church agrees to pray earnestly for, and prepare diligently in advance for, a productive revival meeting. A Guide to Preparing for an Effective Revival Meeting and other valuable resources are available in the Church Resources section of the Revive This Nation website (swbts.edu/revivalprep).
Your church agrees to provide transportation from/to the airport, local transportation, lodging and meals for the preacher while on the field.
Your church agrees to provide opportunities for preachers to preach five sermons (typically Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Mon-Tues-Wed evenings, but other schedules are acceptable) and to do outreach and personal evangelism in your community for a minimum of three hours a day on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
Preachers are permitted to accept love offerings and honorariums, but they are not required.
Airline tickets are often purchased two or three months in advance. In the unlikely event that your church finds it necessary to cancel the revival meeting after January 20, 2014, your church agrees to reimburse SWBTS for the cost of any airline ticket which may have been purchased for the preacher to travel to your church.
