Answering God's call

"I left a full-time ministry position in Tennessee in order to pursue more training, now I serve in a small church in New Orleans as a bivocational pastor. My family would not have been able to come to seminary without the generous support of Southern Baptists through the Cooperative Program and through the seminary's Providence Fund. I want to thank everyone who has given sacrificially so students – married or single – can afford quality theological training at NOBTS.
