"The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
- Zephaniah 3:17
Dean of Women's Programs
In the fall of 1939 at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, a group of student wives felt the need for an organization for wives on campus. For more than 70 years, Southwestern has invested in student wives through this organization.
Metochai, evolving from the Greek word meaning partners, seeks to prepare student wives to be partners in ministry with their husbands. Metochai also provides spiritual growth and fellowship opportunities.
