New Testament Survey

New Testament Survey is an eight-week online course, February 1 to March 31, 2023, taught by Dr. Tony Cleaver.

We will survey the entire New Testament — the background, authorship, and content. You’ll dive deep into the life and work of Jesus, the organization of churches, and the early missionary enterprises.


Books Required

  • The Bible — If you need a recommendation for a good study Bible, we recommend the ESV, NASB, NKJV, or NIV.
  • Encountering the New Testament — By Walter A. Elwell & Robert W. Yarbrough. Any edition is fine (Amazon link).
  • Holman Bible Atlas (optional) — Broadman and Holman Publishers. (Amazon link ).

Discerning a Call to Ministry

Discerning a Call to Ministry for those who are praying about whether or not to pursue a vocation in Christian ministry. This online course runs from February 6 to March 29, 2023 and will be taught by Dr. Clif Johnson, pastor of Garrett Memorial Baptist Church in Hope, AR.


We will study the work of ministry, the biblical aspirations and qualifications that make up the call to Christian ministry, and the church’s role in confirming one’s call to ministry.

Discerning a Call to Ministry will lay out the biblical perspective of how God draws a person into Christian ministry by examining church pastoral ministry and the biblical process of being approved by a church. We will also learn the structure and role of associationalism, along with the main features of pastoral work.

“I learned SO MUCH…”

I learned SO MUCH about part of the Bible that had always intimidated me before. I was able to dive deeper into scripture and stories I hadn’t touched since I was a child in Sunday School!

“…a feeling of accomplishment when you receive that certificate.”

If you have trouble following a personal study plan, keeping yourself accountable, or just want to test new waters, enroll in the BMA Theological Seminary [free courses]. It is fun to meet other people and read their opinions on various topics proposed by the professor. It also gives you a feeling of accomplishment when you receive that certificate upon completion.
