Southeastern launches the Raleigh Executive Training Institute
January 19, 2017
Beginning in January 2015, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) will launch the Raleigh Executive Training Institute (RETI) to make theological education more accessible to accomplished professionals and active retirees living in Raleigh and surrounding communities.
President of Southeastern, Daniel Akin, said, “We are excited about the impact we believe this will make for the cause of Christ in the Raleigh-Durham area. We would love to see you participate.”
The RETI will be staffed by Southeastern faculty teaching through seven core courses leading to an accredited masters-level certificate in Biblical Studies and Theology. The Certificate of Biblical Studies and Theology features foundational courses that are short and manageable to accommodate a busy schedule.
Each class meets six times, all on Thursday evenings from 5:45 to 7:00 p.m. Prior to each class, students will watch three, twenty-minute lectures. Thursday evenings will feature face-to-face lectures and discussion.
Classes do not meet over the summer or during the holiday season, and a two-week break is scheduled between classes to keep the pace of study manageable throughout the entire program. All classes are offered near North Hills in Raleigh at a location with on-site parking convenient to offices and homes in the Triangle.
