Spiritual Formation & Student Life

Welcome to the Spiritual Formation and Student Life office. We are committed to serving all students as we facilitate "the other education" that happens as you progress through an academic program at NOBTS and Leavell College. If you have a question about the institution, if you want to get plugged into some facet of the seminary and college community, or if you have a concern and don't know where to take it, start with us. If we can solve it ourselves, we will. If not, we will connect or resource you and see that you are well cared for. Our office is on the first floor of the Hardin Student Center on the New Orleans campus. Feel free to stop in anytime, call us, or email us directly.
