Eight students with ties to Florida graduate from Southern Seminary, Boyce College

Nearly 300 master's and doctorate students received their degrees in an outdoor commencement at Southern Seminary on May 14. (Emil Handke/SBTS)Eight students with ties to Florida graduated from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Boyce College during spring commencement ceremonies in Louisville, Ky. 
 
Southern Seminary conferred degrees to 297 Southern students on May 14, and 107 Boyce College students on May 8.
 
In his commencement address, President R. Albert Mohler Jr. charged the new Southern graduates, “Take your place in line and fulfill your ministry with eyes wide open, knowing your destiny in Christ. Go into the world of darkness as brave children of the day.”
 
A week earlier, Mohler encouraged Boyce College graduates, “Follow Christ with all your heart for the length of your days. Lose your life to save it. Take up your cross in the name of the one who died on a cross for you. Use the education you have earned for the glory of God and for the sake of the church and for the furtherance of the Gospel.”
 
Both addresses are available at sbts.edu/resources. Manuscripts of both messages are also available at www.albertmohler.com.
