For many pastors and church leaders, seminary education is a longing that sits just out of their reach. It may be the cost, lack of available time or the distance to the nearest classroom — or a combination of all three — that keeps men and women from being fully equipped through seminary.
That’s where New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary’s (NOBTS) Caskey Center for Church Excellence has stepped in.
Launched in spring 2014 the Caskey Center focuses on the needs of bivocational pastors, as well as pastors and leaders of smaller membership churches, those with less than 150 members. One way the center looks out for the needs of those leaders is through full-tuition scholarships.
