Sureste Presbyterian Theological Seminary
in Tabasco, Mexico

About Our Partner

Synod of the Gulf of Mexico

With many more churches than pastors, the need for leadership development in Mexico is critical. The Seminario Teologico Presbiteriano del Sureste is an institution of the Synod of the Gulf of Mexico that seeks to contribute to the life and mission of the church of Christ in the southeastern part of Mexico. Students come from Tabasco and Chiapas to study in several different academic programs: Bachelor’s in Theology, Bachelor’s in Music, Master’s in Theology and Master’s in New Testament. Sureste also has programs that take instruction out into the church to help equip local congregational leaders for effective ministry. The Outreach Foundation has supported construction projects at the seminary, and this year we assisted the school in renovating its chapel, pictured here. We also provided scholarships that supported the studies of twenty-five students. Rev. Jose Juan Hernandez Garcia is Rector of the school.

The Impact

Sureste is deepening the faith and sharpening the ministry skills of men and women who are responding to a call to serve the church, especially in the states of Tabasco and Chiapas where the church is growing rapidly.

The Need

The Outreach Foundation is seeking gifts totaling $25,000 for scholarships and operating costs for Sureste Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
