The history of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (MABTS) began in 1971 when the institution opened in Little Rock, Arkansas with a faculty of four and student body of twenty-eight [1]. Subsequently, the institution has moved to the greater Memphis, Tennessee area and has a campus in Schenectady, New York [2]. Thus, the institution has been in continuous operation with students enrolled in degree programs since its founding in 1972.


Today a student body of over four hundred and an accompanying staff of teaching and administrative personnel make MABTS a center of educational opportunity in the states of Tennessee and New York.


MABTS has grown in faculty and student enrollment over the last forty-four years. Enrollment figures for Fall 2013 totaled 450 [3] and for Spring 2014 totaled 420 [4]. Enrollment figures for Fall 2014 totaled 411 [5] and for Spring 2015 totaled 381 [6].


The rate of full time enrollment has been reported since 1990 for both campuses. Fall 2014-15 had a total of 268 full time students [7]. Since 1972, over two thousand seven hundred degrees have been awarded [8].
