Northshore Seminary Extension starting Feb 23rd
Excited to announce that we will have an Extension of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary on the Northshore beginning this month. The classes will meet for now at the offices of the Northshore Baptist Associations at 11411 McLaughlin Lane in Hammond. On February 23rd there will be an orientation meeting. Below is a memo from our local “Dean” (my title for him), Randy Davis. He will teach the first class.
The Plans for our North Shore Seminary Extension Center are finalized. We have been approved by New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, so we are ready to get started.
We will have an orientation meeting on Tuesday, February 23, at 7:00 p.m. at the Clegg Missions and Ministry Center (11411 McLaughlin Lane, Hammond LA 70403). I will tell you about the costs, the textbook and where you can find it. We will discuss the class schedule. If you are interested in taking the class you need to be there for the meeting or get in touch with me and let me know. Once the class starts it will be very important that you not miss a class. We will meet once a week for two hours. This will last for 8 weeks.
One final bit of information you need. Each class is a one-hour class. The survey of the New Testament will be covered in three separate classes and each class will be for one hour of college credit. There is a one-time registration fee of $25.00 and each course will cost $100.00.
The best way to contact me is by email, firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you at the orientation meeting.
Let me or Dr. Davis know if you have any questions. The course work is part of the Certificate Program at New Orleans Seminary. One hour of college credit is earned with each course. This will be a great opportunity for those who have always wanted, but never had the opportunity for theological education, those who just want to stay sharp in a continuing Education kind of way, or for those who are mulling around with starting their theological training formerly. Hopefully, the program will grow and more courses can be offered in the future. Thanks to Randy and Dr. David Cranford for their work to get this program kicked off on the Northshore.
