Letter from Dr. Bailey
When I enrolled at Dallas Theological Seminary, the average student was only 22. Today, the average age of a DTS student is 37!
That is why DTS is committed to expanding our distance-learning program, so that more students can receive the same solid training in the Word that we’ve provided for 90 years, without leaving the ministries God has called them to.
In fact, our motto for distance learning is, “Stay and Make Disciples.”
“I’m already in ministry; I work a lot; I have a family,” explains Pastor Keith Twigg of Harvest Church in Montana and Wyoming, a current student in our distance-learning Masters of Christian Leadership program. “Being able to do a portion of my degree through online classes was really the turning point in being able to pick DTS. It gave me an opportunity to live out my dream.”
Now, to ensure that our distance-learning students continue to receive the same quality education as our on-campus students, I’m asking for your help to make the following crucial upgrades before the new semester begins:
- Purchasing a new, professionally developed digital course management system to replace the homegrown system we developed nine years ago. Total cost: $40,000
- Adding a digital media content editor to prepare online course materials so that the materials are high-quality and easy for students to use. This is one of our most pressing needs. Total cost: $60,000
- Expanding our digital library resources for online and extension students. Total cost: $60,000
Is God calling you to help raise up more godly servant-leaders through a gift to the distance-learning program today?
With grateful expectancy,
Mark L. Bailey, Ph.D
