4: Have you been called to ministry, and are looking for tools that can help equip you while you lead or serve in the ministry? Leavell College, the undergraduate program of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, can do just that. Leavell College, an accredited college, has been offering various forms of undergraduate education to adult learners for nearly 40 years through courses on campus and online. With programs ranging from non-credit certificate to the baccalaurette level, Leavell College provides ministerial training that equips church leaders to be effective in their ministries. The curriculum provided by the college strikes a delicate balance between theory and practice as their academic emphasis helps to expand students’ minds, improve critical thinking processes, all while developing the practical skills and abilities they will need to do effective ministry.
