Newburgh Theological Seminary

 Newburgh Students and Graduates are in all fifty states and forty countries!

 

Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
I would love for the following lines to be included in the testimonials affirming NTS.  I am a graduate of two Baptist Schools:  Shorter University, Rome, Ga. (B.A. in Religion and Philosophy); and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div. in Theology).  I have served as Senior Pastor of Freedom Baptist Church, Calhoun, Ga. for twelve years.  I served as an Adjunct Professor of Religion at Shorter University (1992-1998).  I also retired from the U. S. Navy, as a Chaplain.  I retired as a Lieutenant Commander.  I highly recommend NTS to anyone who desires a quality education.  NTS’s curriculum is second to none.  I have finished all the course work and the project paper for the Doctor of Ministry at NTS, and will receive the degree in June, 2014.  I am happy to report that NTS is on par with Shorter University and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary of Louisville, Ky.  Actually, I enjoyed my studies at NTS more than previous studies, because I could work at my own pace.  I finished the D. Min. studies in less than a year.  Also, the faculty and staff worked hands-on with me in such a personal fashion.  I am especially indebted to Dr. Les Liebengood who worked closely with me as my advisor.  He led me through the whole process.  And, whenever I called the school, folks were always ready and happy to answer questions and help me with whatever I needed.  The whole D. Min. process was a wonderful spiritual experience.  I feel closer to the Lord than I ever have.  Thank you Newburgh Theological Seminary.
Sincerely, Jether L. Cochran, B. A., M. Div., and soon to be D. Min.

After teaching in Christian and public schools for over twenty-five years I felt
the need for additional education to be able to assist my husband, a church
pastor, in his work in Christian ministry.  We were blessed to find Newburgh
Theological Seminary online.  I have completed a Master’s in Church
Administration and a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling from Newburgh and am now
completing an Ed. D. in Christian Education.  I have joined the grading staff of
Newburgh Theological Seminary and I’m working with Christian Resort Ministry
International as training director alongside my husband Bill as we develop the
training curriculum and materials for the organization.  Newburgh has truly been
a blessing in our lives. ----Dr. Kathryn Perry, Coolidge, AZ
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After ministering for more than twenty-five years in a church setting with
traditional degrees it was an added blessing to be able to continue my education
in an interest that has always fascinated me, Church History.  I was privileged
to be able to receive a Ph. D. in Church History from Newburgh as well as a Th.
D. in Theology and am now Director of Training Ministry and the Regional
Director of RV Ministry in Arizona with Christian Resort Ministry International.

Since writing my last testimony message I have graduated from Newburgh with a Bachelor’s degree in Bible studies. I have begun work on my Master’s program in Apologetics and hope to complete the program in time for June graduation. I am head of the Hospital Ministry at Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX, home of the World’s largest medical complex. We have about 40 to 50 patients per day in 25 or more hospitals. With a team of four pastors and 55 volunteers we minister to the patients and families. Patients come to Houston from all over the world and we are often called upon to provide ministry to those from other states and countries. It is a most enriching ministry with many opportunities to witness and to serve our Lord in unexpected ways. I am looking forward to my further studies at Newburgh in the Master’s Apologetics program to enhance my ability to perform my ministry at Second Baptist Church.

I am now teaching Bible as Literature at the University
of Mary Washington with a strong emphasis on the Psalms.
I am drawing from my PhD courses at Newburgh and
also Leland Ryken’s handbook for Bible Lit.
 
If you ever offer seminars in the Mid Atlantic region,
I would love to teach a course on Bible Lit or one of
the specific genres such as the Psalms as poetry
or Job as drama.
 
Also in reference to my dissertation (2008) on the
intertextuality of the Bible and the non fiction genres
of the dissenting English women of 17th century,
I have had a request from a scholar at Duke to share
my research with him. He is now director of Baptist
Heritage Studies at Duke but taught at
Houston Baptist Univ. for 14 years.
I also presented the “Jane Turner” portion
(with some revisions) of my dissertation at the
Conference on Christianity and Literature in October at HBU.
 
So as you can see, I am continuing my journey with Biblical
Studies that began at Newburgh Theological Seminary.

Knowing Jesus has been the most personal and
most valuable part of my life. Without it now, all my relationships
are baseless, worthless and non-existent.

was a mind blowing experience and a statement of fact that God can save anyone.

steps of the righteous are ordered by the Lord. Indeed God has
ordered my step to this great institution and I value its belief and integrity so highly.

I must confess that Newburgh Seminary is totally in its own league,
nothing to be compared to it and I will recommend it any time
anywhere to everyone that wants to study and learn what really matters.

A 1st Century Church in a 21st Century post-Christian nation.
I must confess
that why Cod would choose human instruments to convey
His life-gining message to express His own glory is beyond my
understanding and is most surely hid in the mystery of the will and
wisdom of God. Especially in my undeserving life,
but what a high and
holy calling God has placed on my life. Paul never started out to preach the gospel,
and I can relate to that - neither did I.
In fact, I did not want anything to do with
Christianity at all; however, I did go to church.
My life hit rock bottom and as a
result of my bad choices and rebellion against
God I was incarcerated.
Today, more than ever I realize how God in Christ
came to save sinners.
I love what John Newton said,
"I am a great sinner, but Christ is a great Savior."
God has revealed His glorious gospel
and caused it to shine in my heart and
to be able to stand and be a messenger of this
glorious gospel is serious business.
And as someone has said so well, "It is deadly business."

 As a mother with three toddlers,
and working in a parish with Jr., Sr. and college aged youth, putting classroom time
into my schedule was a near impossibility.  This program was flexible enough for me
to pursue theology reflective of my Lutheran beliefs.  While it requires self discipline,
it is not a high pressure situatio.  Through the feedback involved in my papers,
I am able to piece together a cohesive understanding of my faith
and how to impart that knowledge to the youth I lead.

a church plant in Oconomowoc, WI
Programs of Study with NTS working on my M.Div. degree
 and currently planting a church. I also work as editor and graphic design
for the Christian Courier Newspaper in Wisconsin.
Before I surrendered my life to Christ, I had no direction and failed at almost everything I did.
I tried other religions but only in Christ did my life change and find its meaning.
God called me into ministry and I have been working toward
glorifying Christ for the past 15 years.
Newburgh Theological Seminary allows me to do the work of the ministry
and yet still develop my relationship and knowledge
outside of my personal devotions and doing ministry.
It challenges my thinking and makes me look at things outside of the
 context of my world. It is a great program.
