NEW ORLEANS — In a move that brings together New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary’s (NOBTS) heart to reach the city and the North American Mission Board’s (NAMB) efforts for Gospel impact in New Orleans, NOBTS trustees approved a partnership with NAMB to launch a church planting center on the NOBTS campus.
The impact of the new center will resonate well beyond New Orleans as church planters are trained and sent out to serve throughout North America.
“I am incredibly excited about where NOBTS president Jamie Dew is leading NOBTS, and this partnership will make the seminary a hub for anyone who wants to be immersed in the skills needed for church planting,” NAMB president Kevin Ezell said. “We have the capacity to plant hundreds of additional churches each year if there are more qualified planters available, and I believe this partnership will help us do that.”
