CBL & Southern Seminary

 While studying the Word of God and preparing for vocational ministry, we often need help living it daily (2 Peter 2:12).  CBL provides a number of services for students at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.  

Marriage Care

CBL hosts regular marriage training events called Datenight IN. Datenight IN is ministry marriage success training for couples at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary who are serious about growing in their relationship. These evenings equip couples to grow in true intimacy, connection, purpose, and to experience closeness for a lifetime. It gives couples the vision and foundation to build oneness during a life in ministry.

Individual Care




Those preparing for ministry are not immune to the problems of life. If you’re a Southern student and you’re having trouble, let us help you by pointing you to the gospel and offering practical guidance and help.


We know preparing for ministry can feel overwhelming. While the classroom is incredible training, it also can be helpful to meet with someone who’s a few laps ahead of you in life and ministry. We would love to grab coffee and discuss what life might look like for you in the next few years (Titus 2:1-8).

“CBL counselors were so helpful in walking me through a process that I was essentially crawling around blind in. They had me read Scripture and discover for myself (with help) what aspects of the issue were suffering and what aspects were my sin, and what the Bible had to say. Their direction was not negligent of the practical aspect either; I almost always had work to do during the week. This helped me to ‘discipline myself for the purpose of godliness,’ and to be able to deal with difficulties better-equipped in the future.”
