BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Louisiana College and Gateway Seminary signed an agreement that will allow students to apply college credits earned at LC to the school in California.
“This agreement is kind of a streamlined approach that helps students get through seminary
quicker based on what they’ve already learned here at Louisiana College,”Dr. Jeff Lorg, President of Gateway Seminary said.
Gateway Seminary is a graduate school aligned with the Southern Baptist Convention in Ontario, California.
Louisiana College President Rick Brewer and Iorg signed the agreement on Tuesday, Sept. 14. LC is a private Baptist college in Pineville, La.
Brewer has also signed agreements with Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
“Gateway makes our fourth articulation agreement out of the six Southern Baptist seminaries, and we look forward to partnering with all of them,” Brewer said. “It’s a win-win for our students.”
Justin Langford, dean of the School of Missions and Ministries, said he is grateful for the articulation and students benefit from the robust design of LC’s B.A. degree by having their master’s finished faster.
Langford also said many LC graduates with a B.A. in Missions and Ministries go on to seminary to further their theological education.
“This academic partnership affirms the quality of the College’s Missions & Ministries program and readiness of our graduates to flourish at the Seminary level,” Brewer said. “And Gateway is in sunny California—who wouldn’t want to go advance their studies for the Kingdom of God in such a beautiful place?”
