Three gentlemen earned degrees from the United Baptist Theological Seminary of Natchitoches Aug. 30.
The main purpose of the institution is to establish and maintain a theological seminary to educate men and women of all denominations to become leaders in the local churches, community and nation through a program of Biblical and Theological Studies, Academic Education in the Arts & Sciences and Professional Studies in Christian Education, Pastoral Ministry, Evangelism, and other vocational areas.
“This degree will be used to further the ministry of Jesus Christ and educate others who would like to grow in the ministry.” – Altorio Rushell Holden Sr., Doctorate of Divinity
“With this degree I plan to first return and complete my Master’s Degree. In the meantime, I would like to pursue a job or career that would coincide with ministry. I truly believe that this degree can help me achieve those goals and be able to go further in ministry itself.” – Isiah Deshun Anderson, Bachelor of Theology
“I am to bring God’s people to Him through prayer and the sharing of the gospel of Christ Jesus. Also to enhance the development of God’s people through biblical education and application, discipleship and mentorship.” – Elijah Joshua Smith, Bachelor of Theology
The next semester will begin January 2022. Classes are at Evergreen Baptist Church in St. Maurice. For more information, contact Dr. Elbert Demery at 318-652-2109.
