A Word from our Dean

NOBTS has one of the largest DMin programs with a wide variety of specializations. This seminary pioneered the DEdMin degree and is one of only five such programs in the United States. A Korean DMin Program has recently been added to our North Georgia Hub in Atlanta. You will not find a better place to prepare you for the next stage in your professional development.
