Welcome to NOBTS and Leavell College Chapel

Our desire in the chapel ministry is to address our core value of spiritual vitality at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. We strive to provide our campus family and visitors with a time of spiritual encouragement and challenge to grow our love of Christ — the foundation of all that we do.

You are invited to join us for chapel services, which are held Tuesdays and Thursdays during the semester at 11:00am. If you are unable to attend in person, you may join us online using one of the links below.

Imagine Christ-centered preachers like Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, John Knox, John Broadus, John Wesley, George Whitefield, John Calvin, and Martin Luther gathered around a small room with seminary students discussing Christian ministry. Hear these "dead preachers" dialogue about the anointing of the Holy Spirit through the prayer life of the preacher. Listen to them discuss the primacy of the Word and the supremacy of God's glory. Study their zeal for taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unbelieving world.

Imagine a society of contemporary preachers who have laid their lives at the foot of the cross and risen with a passion to carry the mantle of biblical preaching passed down to them by great men of the past. We have imagined it, and we long for it to be a reality.
