7 Reasons to Study at NOBTS @NGA

NGA extension center hosted the Campus Preview Day on April 3 (Monday), 2017. If you have missed the event as a prospective student, we would like to encourage you to review the PPT that we shared with other prospective students at the event. The PPT will provide you 7 reasons to study at NOBTS at the NGA center. Please click here for the PPT content: 7 REASONS TO STUDY AT NOBTS @NGA 


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.


DISC5171/Personal Disciple Making Course Update

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  • The FLEX MDiv has been replaced by the Standard MDiv.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 advising: Graduate Academic Advising.
