Did You Miss an On-Site Orientation?
If you have missed an On-Site Orientation as a new student or a current student, please contact Dr. Judi Jackson, the NGA Student Services Director, at jjackson@nobts.edu. Dr. Jackson will provide you more detailed information about the On-Site orientation and guide you how to complete the orientation in your area. The On-site orientation is a requirement for all students for graduation.

Dr. Chuck Kelley--"Casting the Vision"   
NOBTS had a special chapel service on Jan. 26, 2017, which was messaged by Dr. Chuck Kelley, and the message was about "Casting the Vision."
If you missed watching the chapel service, here is the archived video for you. Dr. Kelley has emphasized on missions and evangelism through the scripture of Matthew 28: 16-20. Please click here for the chapel video:   Dr. Chuck Kelley/Casting the Vision

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  • The FLEX MDiv has been replaced by the Standard MDiv.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 advisingGraduate Academic Advising.

in learning how to equip yourself to be a "self-funded" servant of God? Then this is the workshop for you. Rev Mike Riggins (North American Mission Board) has taught this course for North American American Mission Board Missionaries for many years. While God has called you to serve Him - the traditional "career" in a church vocation may not be what He wants. Through this workshop, you can equip yourself to serve God and care for your family.
We will be offering CHPL6381/Ministry Integration Project course as a March Workshop in Spring 2017. This course will be counted as a free elective course for MDiv., MACE, and MA students.
If extra credit hours are needed for your graduation, you may register for this course. 
**Note that the registration deadline for March Workshop is Feb. 13, 2017.
Please register for the course through Self-serve account.




NOLA2U: A New Delivery System to Consider

Have you heard about this new delivery system where you register for an on-campus class but you attend it from your computer? That's right ... this spring NOBTS is trying out this option which means no driving to the extension center or main campus for these possibilities! Go to http://www.nobts.edu/_resources/pdf/academics/Grad%20Sched%20Spg%202017%20Internet.2-23-16.pdf and scroll down to the NOLA2U offerings. Times listed are CST and you must be "present" for the whole class time or you will be counted absent. Only 3 absences will be allowed in this semester. If you have questions about this, email me and I'll forward you an informational video. This could give you the main campus experience and allow you to take classes not offered for a while at your respective extension center.








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.
