Ministry to Women Program

Directed by Dr. Emily Dean

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was the first Southern Baptist school to offer formal, specialized theological education in the area of ministry to women. Since its beginning in March 1997, this innovative program has increased in student enrollment and degree options. Its success is the result of growing interest in ministry to women and increased leadership roles for women in the local church. God is preparing hundreds of women to minister to other women through their local churches.

The Courses

The Ministry to Women Program offers semester-long courses, online courses, and academic intensives. Academic intensives are offered in a convenient three- or five-day class format, approximately four times each year. In addition, two courses are taught online each semester.

The Course Schedule

A multi-year course schedule and description of courses and intensives may be obtained from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Students who have received at least a high school diploma or its equivalent may earn baccalaureate academic credit for these certificate courses, and graduate students can earn master’s-level credit.
