It is we great sadness that we inform the BTS family and community that we have lost one of our faculty family. Dr. Larry Dozier, Professor of Biblical Counseling, passed away unexpectedly on June 17. Dr. Dozier was an insightful, kind, gentle, and challenging professor at the BTS Birmingham Learning Center and the Bibb County Correctional Institution Learning Center. We will follow up with more information as we receive it and a letter to the BTS community. Join us in praying for Dr. Dozier's family, friends, students, and patients; while also rejoicing that Larry is in the presence of his Savior.

Dear Friends,

As we continue to work to navigate the waters of the COVID-19 crisis, we will continue to hold classes only via video conference this summer. At this time, we do not have a projected date to return to live classroom activity for the summer semester, but please be assured we are continuing to pursue all possibilities, working closely with our ministry partners, to find the best time to return to a live classroom model. Thank you for your patience with us and let us all continue to seek the face of the Lord in this time of waiting.

Effective April 30-May 15
As of this writing, I’m sure all of our Alabama resident students have been made aware of the recent shift from the “Stay At Home” directives to the “Safer At Home” Directives by Gov. Ivey. In our efforts to comply with the federal, state, and local government requests, we will maintain the social distancing protocols for schools and meetings from April 30-May15 by not assembling for live classes onsite at our various learning centers. This means that the "Contemporary Issues in Worship" class on May 7-9 and the "Ecclesiology" class on May 14-16 will both be held as Video Conference intensives.

Our full summer semester starts on May 26 with weekly classes and will last to August 14. As of this writing, all classes are planning to operate via video conference, but as soon as we are able to, we will move local students back into the classrooms. Expect the next announcement right here on or near May 15. Thank you for your patience and may God protect and support all of us during this present distress.

Saint Valentine (February 14th) Some Christian denominations teach that the Catholic church is the AntiChrist but yet celebrate Saint Valentine set up by Catholicism. Who is Saint Valentine?

Thus, Saint Valentine became tradition to the slaves (Israelites). That was prophesied in Deut. 28:64 "...thou shalt serve other gods..."
