About GTI

This year's race will raise money for Southeastern’s Global Theological Initiative (GTI). The Global Theological Initiative seeks to employ the resources of SEBTS to benefit theological education around the world. Our goal is to develop indigenous leaders who are capable of equipping other leaders within their context. GTI develops indigenous leaders who are capable of equipping other leaders within their contexts. We accomplish this by consulting and equipping with partners of existing entities as well as creating new opportunities in areas where theological education is lacking. The proceeds from this race will help support for specific, cross-cultural theological education opportunities around the world. It’s a great way to challenge yourself while giving to a global cause.
