Welcome to DTS Admissions! I am so glad that you are interested in pursuing further education and are considering DTS. The prospect of seminary can be an overwhelming and scary adventure. At times, it feels like there are more questions than answers. I want to encourage you and pray with you! I would love to chat with you and answer any questions that you have. It would be my privilege to walk alongside you during the admissions process at DTS!

I appreciate the community and honesty of the professors and fellow students here at DTS. Life is not always clean, easy, pain-free, and clear. I have been so encouraged by the conviction and passion of my professors but also their humility and transparency. The Spiritual Formation group and the other friendships I have formed are mutually encouraging and challenging. The diverse mix of students, their stories, and traditions have helped give me a deeper appreciation for the body of Christ worldwide. God has blessed DTS with a great faculty but also amazing students that love Jesus Christ and desire to see Him proclaimed among the nations.

DTS is a very familiar place for me. My dad graduated from here over 20 years ago and I lived in Dallas for the first 16 years of my life. (No, my dad was not working on a degree for those 16 years!) As I considered seminary education, my heart kept coming back to DTS. I am forever marked by the men and women who have graduated from this great institution. It has been my privilege to learn and grow under DTS grads my entire life, and now I have the privilege to study here as a student and work in the Admissions Department. God will use your DTS education to influence others with the gospel of Jesus Christ through teaching, modeling, and sharing in a variety of contexts. I’d love for you to be a part of the DTS family!
