There is a multiplication of the gospel, that far exceeds our personal ministry, when we equip leaders in the faith.

WHY THE MDIV?
The MDiv is the definitive seminary degree, because it covers the most ground. From church history and theology to counseling and education--it includes the courses that will best equip you for ministry.
WHAT'S AN ACCELERATED MDIV?
The Accelerated MDiv is a program that allows students to pursue any of the MDiv degrees offered by NOBTS--but lets you save up to 25% in credit hours (and tuition) in the process.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you are a college student or graduate from a Baptist college (or similar), you'll be able to apply some of your course credit from your undergrad to your MDiv.
HOW MUCH AM I REALLY SAVING?
When it comes to time, you can save up to two years. That's as much as 23 hours of some MDivs.
And when it comes to money, that translates to a $6,700 savings at current per-hour tuition rates.
