The deadline for applying without penalty is September 15th.

This is the name of our official NGA Facebook group page. Make sure you find us, like us, and check us regularly. We'll keep you updated on extension center happenings as well as highlights from the main campus.

The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention exists in part to provide practical resources for Southern Baptist churches, leaders, and members. One important means of providing resources is an annual National Conference. This year, the National Conference is on Parenting. The slate of speakers is outstanding and the topics are vital to the health of families and churches, ranging from discussing parenting and spiritual warfare, the family life of Christian leaders to pressing on if you fail as a parent. Time and money, however, make attending the event impossible for most of our students. The good news is that we can bring a portion of the event to students!
Attached are two PDF files. One is a schedule of all event times, provided by the ERLC. The other is a Promo flyer with the NOBTS live stream schedule and information about the Kid's Camp.

Now that the semester is underway, it's a great time to check on your progress in your degree program and make sure you're on track! Click on the following link to schedule an appointment with Dr. Judi Jackson, NGA Student Services Director: Academic Advising Schedule.  Note: Phone appointments are assumed unless you state otherwise.

If you want to use Logos version, here is a link for an offer of Logos version 7 Academic Basic for free (click HERE). You simply provide the name of the school, etc. This is also available for students. It’s a free version of Logos. There’s not many on there, but it is free.
