United in Him, One for Him! 1 Peter 3:8

Seminary Extension Program Offered

Seminary Extension


Seminary Extension is not a new idea.  The program has been around the Convention since 1951.  What is new this year is the location.  Buckhead Ridge Ministry Training Group is beginning in the next few weeks.  You are invited to participate with Seminary Extension through this training group.

Seminary Extension is for you if you want a deeper spiritual walk and feel that studying the Scriptures and the church's various ministries can help you grow.  Maybe you do not have the time or the money to go to College or Seminary, but you want more than you can get on your own.  Each course has a fee that is a small fraction of what you might pay for an online university course. It may be that the credits you earn while taking courses might transfer to a College if you choose to pursue ministerial training.

Buckhead Ridge Ministry Training Group offers Certificates in:

            Bivocational Ministry Studies

            Lay Ministry Training

            Women's Ministry


Also, there are Diploma Programs offered for:

            Biblical Studies

            Educational Ministries

            Ministries/Pastoral Education

            Theological Foundation




You may also choose not to pursue a Certificate or a Diploma.  You may take any of the classes offered as individual courses.  You have a desire to grow, and now you have more options from which to choose.



The Group is located at Buckhead Ridge Baptist Church, 1731 Hunter Rd., Okeechobee.  Rev. Phil Nason is the Center Director.  For more information and registration, please contact the Center Administrator, Mrs. Robin Nason, at (813) 777-4813 or

A foundational class for many of the Certificates and Diplomas, BB 3100 How to Understand the Bible, will be offered starting in October.  Call Mrs. Robin Nason to register for this course
