Women’s Auxiliary

817-923-8842 | womensauxiliary@swbts.edu| Monday – Friday | 8:00am – 5:00pm

We are women, alumni, and friends of Southwestern Seminary who support Southwestern Women.

We exist to invest in the lives of current Southwestern Women and support the legacy of Christ-centered education that equips God-called women at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels for a lifetime of ministry. We are women who seek to support and invest in the lives and legacy of Southwestern Women through financial giving, prayer, mentoring, and service. 

Membership is renewed annually each September and is open to women, alumni, friends of Southwestern, and any female relatives of students, faculty, and staff of Southwestern. Join us as we share our support for God-called women as they pursue a lifetime of ministry.
