Student Mentoring Cohort

Every Voice student mentoring cohorts provide an opportunity for mentoring and community for ethnic minority and Majority World students in Christian theological education. Each cohort will have a scholar-mentor who will facilitate monthly meetings (online) and provide encouragement and counsel. Monthly meetings will focus on topics such as navigating academia, developing conference papers, and best practices for success and holistic flourishing.

Spring 2023 Cohort


The Spring 2023 cohort will meet monthly on Zoom from January–June 2023. Possible times are listed in the application (see below) and will be finalized when students have been selected.


The cohort is open to ethnic minority and Majority World students who are currently enrolled in any program of study in theological education at the undergraduate, Master’s, or doctoral levels. Since the cohort will be limited to seven students and the program is designed to provide community, only committed students should apply.

Faculty Mentor

Dr. Miguel Echevarría is an Associate Professor of New Testament and Greek at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s the author of The Future Inheritance of Land in the Pauline Epistles (Pickwick) and essays such as “Middleton and Wright Have We Loved But Padilla and Escobar” (Southeastern Theological Review). His forthcoming works include A Basic Guide to the New Testament (Baker) and short commentaries on John and 1, 2, 3 John in The New Testament in Color: A Multiethnic Commentary on the New Testament (IVP). As a person of Cuban descent, Miguel appreciates the contributions that Latinos make to theological education, which are often overlooked in majority culture contexts. As a result, he believes that valuing the voices and contributions of Latinos and other underrepresented groups leads to a more biblical vision of education in Christian colleges and seminaries.
