NOBTS Partnership with Longview Heights

Dear Pastors, Staff and friends in Ministry


I am so excited to announce a new partnership between Longview Heights Baptist Church and the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary! This partnership will serve Baptists throughout the Mid-South by offering high-quality, affordable, accessible and accredited theological training for Sunday School teachers and officers, bi-vocational pastors, deacons, and church leaders serving in any capacity! Anyone hungering for growth in their Christian walk should prayerfully consider pursuing the Certificate in Biblical Ministry!
Beginning this January, courses will begin for the Biblical Ministry Certificate. The Certificate consists of eight classes taken over a two year period. Each semester, students will take two classes, each two-hour course is only $75!

Classes include:

Introduction to New Testament Study – BIUS1150

This course is designed to provide a survey of the New Testament. The study consists of a brief overview of each book, including pertinent geographical and historical information.

Introduction to Old Testament Study – BIUS1110

This course is designed to provide a survey of the Old Testament. The study consists of a brief overview of each book, including pertinent geographical and historical information.

Baptist Doctrine /Theology – THUS1110

This course is designed to provide a survey of Christian doctrines with an emphasis upon Baptist distinctives. The study consists of an examination of revelation, God, man, the person and work of Christ, the church, the Christian life, and the Christian hope.

Church History – THUS11XX

This course is designed to introduce students to the basic events in the history of the Christian Church.

Evangelism – PMUS1110

This course is designed to provide a study of the biblical basis of evangelism, church programs for evangelism, and personal witnessing.

Missions – PMUS1117

This course is designed to introduce students to biblical and theological foundations of Christian missions and provide historical overview.

Apologetics – THUS11XX*

The study consists of topical lectures and discussions on the reliability and accuracy of various aspects of the Christian faith, and a review of a classic work in apologetics.

Hermenuetics – BIUS11XX

This course is designed to introduce the student to the interpretation of the Bible, seeking to provide a historical perspective and reliable principles with which to study, interpret, and apply Scripture.

Our aim is to serve by providing access to excellent and affordable education and training that will enhance the ministry skills of individuals, strengthen churches and advance His Kingdom!

As you well know, the need for more effective leadership in local churches is evident. Pastors of small churches need assistance in leading the total church program. Mid-sized churches have leadership needs in age-graded programs. Staff members in larger churches need additional assistance in program development and implementation.

The church leadership certificate program addresses the need of leadership by providing specialized, short-term training for church leaders. The only prerequisite is a high school diploma or ged equivalent.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

1) PROMOTE, PROMOTE, PROMOTE!

Encouraging other pastors and staff to share this information with your congregations! Please also help promote by bulletin, website and word of mouth.

2) Recruit and encourage laymen and bi-vocational pastors that you know to enroll!

Classes meet on Monday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. beginning in January. Conveniently located at Longview Heights Baptist Church on Goodman Road in Olive Branch, MS.
