    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- Jonathan Coaty has put out a lot of dough for his wife's master's degree in Christian education.

    Pizza dough, that is.

    Coaty took a second job delivering pizzas to cover the cost of tuition for his appreciative wife Jesica, a first-grade teacher at Beth Haven Christian School in Louisville. She is seeking her degree from nearby Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

    "My husband is more passionate about Christian education than most Christian educators," Jesica said, fighting back tears as she talked about his sacrifice. "He has invested long hours in my degree. By the time I finish in December, he will have delivered nearly 7,000 pizzas." Read More

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- Southern Baptist Convention seminaries long have sought to train ministers in personal integrity, but amid the #MeToo movement, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Daniel Akin said, they have "heightened the alert."

    From Southeastern in North Carolina to Gateway Seminary in Southern California, SBC seminaries are training students and faculty to recognize and deal with abuse, reemphasizing personal sexual morality and offering resources to those struggling with sexual sin.

    Southeastern has "raised the flag and heightened the alert," Akin told Baptist Press, "given the cultural trends that we're now encountering, given the technological world in which we live" where moral failings often are widely publicized. Read More
