Welcome to the Admissions page! It’s my absolute privilege to walk alongside you during your application process. For most people, applying to seminary requires a huge leap of faith, such as moving your family across the country or even across the globe. You might question, “How will seminary fit into my current season of life?” Perhaps you feel a great desire to attend seminary but are unsure which degree program would best equip you to do the work that God has called you to do. It is my goal to put your mind at ease and to help make your application process as seamless as possible. Please don’t hesitate to email or call me with any questions. I would love to connect with you!

I am pursuing the MA in Christian Education (MACE). Applying to seminary definitely required me to step out in faith. After establishing my career within a major corporation, God began to chart a new course of direction in my life. He blessed with me a full-time role at a faith based non-profit and gave me an opportunity to serve in a greater capacity at my church! As my passion to serve others grew, so did my passion for solid biblical truth—firm truth that can be tested and one that can transform the lives of the people that God places before me.

One of the major reasons why I chose Dallas Theological Seminary is because many of the people who I see exegeting God’s Word well studied at DTS, including my pastor. Pursuing a seminary education is not only a dream come true but an answered prayer. I sincerely pray that if the Lord is leading you to apply, you’ll make the jump and see if God would have you join the student body at DTS.
