"Having surrendered to preach at 35 years of age, my pastor encouraged me to attend NBBS. When I arrived, I found that I was neither the youngest nor the oldest student. I was impressed with the fact that pastors were my teachers. I was taught the KJV Bible from Genesis to Revelation by men who loved it and lived it. I have always been thankful for the enlightenment, education and encouragement I received as a student at Norris. Many of my instructors have continued to mentor me during my twenty plus years as a pastor. When asked what school I recommend for ministry training, without hesitation I recommend the NBBS to young and old alike! There may be bigger, but there is none better!"


(Glen Anderson, 1994 graduate of NBBS. Former Pastor of the Pensacola Baptist Temple, Pensacola, Florida; formerly pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church, Mesquite, TX 1994-2000.)
