Howdy! Thanks for stopping by and visiting our Teams Admission page. It would be my pleasure to talk with you and answer any questions you have about pursuing a degree at DTS. As a recent graduate, I understand the excitement of getting that diploma, the uncertainties, the fears, the looming question “will I ever finish???” and everything else that comes along this incredible journey. If the Lord is tugging at your heart for you to further your education, please do not hesitate to call our team. We are here for you!

As I reflect back on my time at DTS, a lot of great memories come to mind. The one thing I will never forget was watching how the leadership of this highly-regarded and respected institution daily leads out of authenticity, humility, love, and dependence on the Lord. DTS’s mission to “Teach Truth. Love Well.” is infused in every facet, whether it is in maintaining the grounds, teaching a class, taking a phone call, or sipping coffee as you chat about life with a group of friends at HOPE Coffee (which by the way has amazing lattes!). The men and women at DTS truly care for one another.

Attending DTS and receiving my degree in Christian Leadership has been one of the greatest accomplishments in my life. It took me longer than the estimated two years to finish seminary since I was working full-time in vocational ministry and could only attend school part-time. The Lord used DTS to challenge my thinking, transform my spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ, give me opportunities to cultivate life-long friendships, and remind me the importance of loving God and loving others. If I can do it, I know without a doubt you can too!
