This course of study is recommended by the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship President, Rabbi Ric Worshill. Please see his endorsement below.
“For several years we have been praying for a Southern Baptist seminary to offer an on-line curriculum in Messianic Studies. The Leavell College of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is a prestigious school of higher learning that offers accredited classes that can be transferred to other courses of study and other schools. This is an opportunity for Messianic Believers and Missionaries to start the process of their higher education on-line without leaving their home, employment or congregation. The classes will also be able to fine tune the Hebraic Roots teachings of the local Church Pastor. This course of study was approved on April 17th by the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, Board of Trustees. I fervently advise anyone interested in obtaining schooling in Messianic Studies, to sign up for this educational program. I also recommend all who serve in Messianic ministry leadership to engage in schooling that will enhance their effectiveness in building up the Kadoshim (Saints) to build up the Kingdom of Yeshua (Jesus) with Chaim Ha’brit b’Yeshua (New Life in Jesus).”
Signed, Rabbi Ric Worshill, President of and servant to Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship and the Kadoshim b’Yeshua.
