Women's Auxiliary

Purpose

The Women’s Auxiliary of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary began in 1963, with the purpose of creating friendships, enlisting interest of local women in the Seminary, and to provide funds for scholarships to be awarded to wives of full-time Seminary students.  The Women’s Auxiliary Scholarship Fund provides not only tuition assistance, but help with registration fees and textbooks.

Recipients

The Women’s Auxiliary of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary awards scholarships to wives of students who make the decision to continue their education while their husbands are enrolled in the Seminary. For many women, a theological education is available to them without any additional financial burden on their family. Receiving additional training and education helps the wives become better equipped for serving alongside their spouse in ministry. 

Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon

This biannual event joins the Women’s Auxiliary with the JoAnn Leavell Clothing Scholarship Fund.  It provides a new ensemble for Women’s Auxiliary scholarship recipients. As the recipients model their new outfit, their pre-recorded testimony plays in the background.  A delicious lunch, special music and a word from Dr. Rhonda Kelley, our President’s wife, all adds up to an enjoyable Fall event on campus. 

January Luncheon

A much anticipated event, the Women’s Auxiliary January Luncheon is a gathering of women from many different area churches who enjoy fellowship around the table, special music, a scholarship testimony, and a word from our President, Dr. Chuck Kelley. The next luncheon is scheduled for Thursday, January 18, 2018.

Coffee & Fellowship Meetings

Coffee and Fellowship meetings are held in the Spring and Fall on campus. An NOBTS faculty member brings a devotional and a Women’s Auxiliary Scholarship recipient gives a testimony. The ladies enjoy food and fellowship with women from neighboring churches.
