Legacy Brick

Together we are building a lasting legacy at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Legacy Bricks at NOBTS

Bricks start at $250

We’re starting something new, and we want you to be a part of it.

For one hundred years now NOBTS has existed to train Church leaders to take the Gospel far and wide. A part of this has been our outpost here in New Orleans. Many seminarians find that training in a special and eclectic place like New Orleans has given them a insight and edge to ministry they would not have received otherwise.

With a brick at NOBTS, you are supporting the annual Providence Fund as well as the Legacy Brick fund. Three lines of text allow you to write your name or family’s names, dedicate a brick to a person who went over and beyond while you were in seminary, or pay tribute to the church that made seminary possible for you.

Exclusive premium pavers are $1,000 while spots are available.
