Women's Auxiliary

What is Women's Auxiliary?


The Women’s Auxiliary of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary began in 1963, with the purpose of creating friendships, enlisting interest of local women in the Seminary, and to provide funds for scholarships to be awarded to wives of full-time Seminary students.  The Women’s Auxiliary Scholarship Fund provides not only tuition assistance, but help with registration fees and textbooks.


The Women’s Auxiliary of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary awards scholarships to wives of students who make the decision to continue their education while their husbands are enrolled in the Seminary. For many women, a theological education is available to them without any additional financial burden on their family. Receiving additional training and education helps the wives become better equipped for serving alongside their spouse in ministry. 

Fall Luncheon

The Fall Luncheon is a bi-annual event where the Women’s Auxiliary Scholarship recipients are introduced to ladies who attend. The luncheon features a testimony from one of the Scholarship recipients, a delicious lunch, special music and a special speaker. This all adds up to an enjoyable Fall event on campus. 

January Luncheon

A much anticipated event, the Women’s Auxiliary January Luncheon is a gathering of women from many different area churches who enjoy fellowship around the table, special music, a scholarship testimony, and a word from a special speaker. 

Coffee & Fellowship Meetings

Coffee and Fellowship meetings are held in the Spring and Fall on campus. An NOBTS faculty member brings a devotional and a Women’s Auxiliary Scholarship recipient gives a testimony. The ladies enjoy food and fellowship with women from neighboring churches.
