The Southwest School of Bible Studies is a part of the overall work of the Southwest church of Christ in Austin, Texas. Southwest began operations in September 1978 in fulfillment of 2 Timothy 2:2, "And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." The school operates, therefore, under the direction of the Southwest eldership and under the director whom the elders have appointed. The director has the responsibility of carrying out the educational organization and regular administrative affairs of the school. As our school motto indicates, our purpose as an educational institution is "To Know Jesus, and to Make Him Known," an aspiration we embrace conscientiously. We hope that you will enjoy your time as a part of the Southwest congregation and school family.
