New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary has been awarded a $1,005,000 core funding grant to support the school’s community counseling and childhood education efforts.
“We have a deep commitment to making a positive impact on our community through ministry engagement and community partnerships,” NOBTS Chancellor Chuck Kelley said of the grant provided by Baptist Community Ministries (BCM) “[BCM] has given us one of the largest grants in our history and it will be used to help make New Orleans a better place to live.”
BCM is a faith-based Christian organization supporting projects and programs that enhance the health, education and public safety in the five-parish, greater New Orleans region. According to the organization’s website, BCM is committed to the task of improving the physical, mental and spiritual health of the individuals they serve.
The grant awarded to NOBTS, which will be distributed over a three-year period, will support the work of the Leeke Magee Christian Counseling Center and Danielson Early Learning Center (ELC) at the seminary. Both centers provide vital services to underserved communities in New Orleans — the Leeke Magee Center through affordable counseling services and the Danielson ELC through affordable child education services.
