Spiritual Formation II (DISC 5171) was approved as an elective rather than a required course. Standard MDiv joins 11 other degree programs that do not require this course. 
In the past, students in DISC 5170 were automatically registered for DISC 5171, but this course is not required anymore, so students have the responsibility to register for Spiritual Formation II. 
  • The FLEX MDiv has been replaced by the Standard MDiv. Therefore, the Flex MDiv and "old" Standard MDiv are now the new Standard MDiv which goes in effect Spring 2017 (see attachment).
  • All students who are in the Standard MDiv degree plan are not required to take DISC 5171 to complete their degree program. But, they can still take DISC 5171 as 1-hour of the 12 required electives in the Standard MDiv. In fact, if a student chose to take a 2-hour elective, this course would complement it well to reach the 12 hours of required electives. (This can be encouraged in your class.)
  • There are still 22-degree programs (Specialized MDivs and some MAs) that still require Spiritual Formation II (DISC 5171). So, all students need to look to determine through academic advising and faculty if they need to take this course as an elective or required course. Here is the link to contact a graduate academic advising:Graduate Academic Advising.

 End of Semester Dates
 
It is hard to believe the Fall 2016 semester is almost over. Here are important dates in regards to accessing courses on Blackboard:

1. For Online/Hybrid classes, students lose access to their classes on December 15 at 11:59 PM.
This date is set by the Online Learning Center and cannot be re-opened without permission from the deans.

2. On-Campus/Workshop students will lose access to their classes on December 30 at 11:59 PM.
Press onward to finish this semester strong, and have a blessed Christmas season celebrating the birth of our Savior!​​

HAS GOD CALLED YOU TO THE NATIONS?

Consider serving the nations in Jesus' name right here in the Atlanta area. Bill Johnson, pastor of Reach the Nations Church and NOBTS grad, invites you to participate in a summer internship in the Clarkston area, promising an encounter with the international mission field without leaving the state of Georgia! Interns will gain hands-on missions and church planting experience while facilitating and engaging in discipleship opportunities. Dates of training and participation are May 24-August 4, 2017. Check out the church's website at rtnatlanta.com for more info and to apply. Note that this is not a paid position but ministry-related expenses on the field and housing are covered. You may also talk with Dr. Kendrick about a possible class-credit option.

MINISTRY WIFE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM IS FREE!

Yes, you read that right! Registration, tuition, and even the graduation fee for the Ministry Wife Certificate Program is FREE for wives of current NOBTS students. So, if you are enrolled in classes at NOBTS -- main campus, extension center, and online -- your wife is eligible to take classes in the Ministry Wife Certificate Program. And this is a great time for her to start OR to keep going because, for the very first time, the course The Minister's Wife will be offered online this spring beginning January 23. Prior to now, this course has only been offered on the main campus. To find out more about the program, contact Dr. Rhonda Kelley (NOBTS President's Wife and certificate program director) at rkelley@nobts.edu.
