Mathena Hall is home to the Roy Fish School of Evangelism and Missions and the L.R. Scarborough College at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. As stated on its cornerstone, the building was “constructed to facilitate the preparation of evangelists to carry the Gospel to the nations.”
The building is located on the immediate west side of Pecan Manor. In addition to housing the college and the school of evangelism and missions, Mathena Hall also contains smart classroom facilities and a memorial to Lottie Moon, a Southern Baptist missionary who spent nearly 40 years teaching and evangelizing in China. The memorial contains some of Moon’s belongings as well as her Chinese home.
Ground was officially broken for the construction of Mathena Hall on October 21, 2015, and construction began in 2016. The official ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on October 18, 2017.
This book identifies those who made significant contributions to the building and provides details of the structure’s classrooms, exhibits, and various other features, including its numerous tributes to the legacies of past and current ministers of the Gospel.
