New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Leavell College prepare servants to walk with Christ, proclaim His truth, and fulfill His mission. The Global Mission Center is positioned as the hub of mission equipping and sending here at NOBTS as we seek to help our students, staff, and faculty fulfill His mission.
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was established in 1917 as the fulfillment of a century-old dream of Baptists to reach the city of New Orleans and to establish a missionary training school. The Global Mission Center carries out that vision by helping train our students to advance God's mission through academic preparation, active participation, and healthy partnering. Our desire is for our students, faculty, and staff to take the gospelfrom the parishes to all peoples. There is no better place to train than here in New Orleans. Preparing here equips you to serve anywhere the Lord may send you.

Prayer is a core value of the Global Mission Center. Christ's words call his follower to pray for His mission around the world: "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Luke 10:2). Below are some resources to help you pray for God's work in New Orleans and among the nations.
