The National Baptist Convention of America International, Inc. (NBCA) has taken proactive steps to bridge the soft skills gap by partnering with Success Training Institute (STI); the industry leading online soft skills training provider.
As one of the nationâ€™s oldest religious fellowships of churches, NBCA believes the alliance with Success Training Institute will provide the resources needed to empower its members with holistic workforce development programs.
Dr. Samuel C. Tolbert, Jr., President of the NBCA and Pastor of the Greater St. Maryâ€™s Missionary Baptist Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana expressed excitement about the partnership with Success Training Institute. â€œSoft skills training is universally recognized as the key to career and entrepreneurial excellenceâ€, he stated. â€œSuccess Training Instituteâ€™s online platform allows our members to drastically and conveniently improve their skills by accessing soft skills courses from their mobile devices.â€
Success Training Institute offers cutting edge technology that allows users to earn soft skill certifications in dozens of courses; including leadership, time management, effective decision making and conflict resolution. The companyâ€™s CEO, DL Wallace, sees the alliance with NBCA as an example of how the church and business communities should work together. â€œThis relationship allows members of the NBCA to gain access to the skills they need at a price most can afford,â€ Wallace stated. â€œDr. Tolbert and the other visionary leaders within the organization have opened yet another door of opportunity for business minded professionals all over the world through our partnership.â€

DL Wallace and Dr. Tolbert both explained to the thousands of members in attendance, how the alliance has the potential to increase employability, career advancement and home based business success.

Zion Baptist Church in Austin, Texas, Rev. Dr. G.V.
