New Orleans seminaryNew Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is entering into a time of transition as long-time president Dr. Chuck Kelley announced retirement plans earlier this month. 

Kelley, who has led the Southern Baptist school since 1996, will officially step down at the end of the academic year in July, 2019.

The seminary, established in 1917, has about 3,500 students.

Christian apologist Dr. Alex McFarland  says New Orleans seminary has a great tradition of grooming Christian leaders. His hope, he says, is that the seminary will remain committed to beliefs championed by Southern Baptists for decades.

"These being," McFarland says, "commitment to Christ the one and only Savior; commitment to the inerrancy and the authority of scripture; commitment to Christ's Great Commission that we win the lost, and that we preach the gospel to all creatures because Baptists have always believed that whosoever will may come."

McFarland says it is important to pass on to upcoming generations the values and the truths that are biblical and a key to living as a Christian.
