Letter from Dr. Bailey
Every spring, Americans “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s” in the form of our taxes. I think it is also an excellent time for every Christian to reevaluate how well we are living out the second half of Matthew 22:21, “[render] to God the things that are God’s.”
Our stewardship is a testimony of our faith that God has provided for us today and will continue to provide for us in the future. Moreover, while we pay our taxes simply as a duty, there is delight in giving to the Lord. Our taxes are spent on things that will soon pass away; our gifts to the Lord are an investment in eternity.
Your support of Dallas Theological Seminary is one such investment. I hope that every time you give to DTS, you take a moment to envision what your gift will do for God’s kingdom—and rejoice.
Our world is suffering a famine “for hearing the words of the LORD” (Amos 8:11–12), yet many who are called by God to be trained at DTS lack the resources to attend. Your support helps more students answer God’s call, so that the Word of God will be proclaimed and the Body of Christ strengthened. Will you give a gift right now?
Your gift today will be multiplied in the lives of DTS students and those they disciple for years to come. In DTS’s 90 years of ministry, students from more than 90 nations have attended our school, and more than 14,000 alumni have been sent out into ministries of all kinds. Another 330 students are preparing to graduate in May. It is impossible to calculate the thousands of hours of Bible teaching and ministry impact they represent over their lifetimes.
I am grateful that you have chosen to make Dallas Theological Seminary a part of your commitment to good stewardship of the resources God has given you. Through your prayers and joyful gifts, you are a channel of blessing to DTS students and the world. Thank you!
With grateful expectancy,
Mark L. Bailey, Ph.D
