$212,000 raised during the Séminaire du Sud golf outing | Baptist life

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (KT) – Students at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) will be the beneficiaries of 112 people participating Monday in the 19th annual Heritage Classic golf tournament. A total of $212,000 was raised to benefit the Southern Fund, which helps cover tuition for SBTS students.

Edward Heinze, vice president of institutional advancement, thanked the 27 teams competing at the Big Spring Country Club for their investment in students, which will result in carrying the gospel to the ends of the earth. He said all the money raised is used to reduce tuition fees.

In addition to these funds, the Rick Bordas Scholarship of $5,000 was presented to Trevor Barylske, an M.Div. student at SBTS. This will cover his tuition for two semesters. He completed 15 hours at SBTS and is currently working part-time at Prism Engineering in Louisville as a civil engineer.

Barylske and his wife, Alyssa, were on hand to accept the scholarship. She works part-time at Target.

He is from northeast Arkansas and holds an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from the University of Alabama at Huntsville. He and his wife, who have been married for two years, are members of Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville. As he accepted the award, he gave a gospel presentation to the crowd and spoke about his passion for international missionary work.

SBTS President R. Albert Mohler, Jr. thanked the golfers for their participation in the tournament which will allow students to be trained as pastors and missionaries “to fight for the faith that has been handed down once and for all. to the saints”.
