PATHWAYS is the new incarnation of the Theology Among the People (TAP) program which has been equipping lay and licensed ministers successfully in the Southeast Conference for over 12 years. We have taken the best of TAP and integrated and built upon it to create a new program that is responsive to the changing needs of the church for well-formed pastoral leaders.

We welcome you to search the SEC Directory to find a church near your home and we hope you have a welcoming experience when you visit. “The Southeast Conference is the mission field for the church, a unique area with greatest possibility for growth,” states Rev. Timothy Downs, SEC Conference Minister.
The SEC believes in strengthening and growing churches, the conference and denomination by equipping churches and their leaders to do the work that God has called them to do.
