Homecoming: Through the Decades Dinner Event Recap

Homecoming has come and gone on another beautiful October weekend. Because last year’s was such a big event at the Wyndham Garden hotel across the street, it’s no surprise that this year’s event was pretty small in attendance, with maybe 45-50 (counting men, women, and children) at the Friday night dinner in the Banquet Hall. But it was an excellent occasion. Those of us who’ve been here for years and those of us who are new were inspired and blessed by the stories from seven alumni representing our six and half decades. And the food was great, too (pasta Alfredo, among...

Summer Kingdom Week 2016: Staff and Students Minister in Nepal.

Can your story about what Jesus has done for you be boiled down to five words?  Can those five words open the door for someone else to become a believer? That was the task set before twelve DCC-connected folks and the many Nepalese people who participated in three evangelism workshops DCC held in Nepal between May 16 and June 1 as part of DCC’s second Kingdom Week mission to Nepal (yes, the mostly Hindu nation where Chomolungma/Mt. Everest resides). [1] Using curriculum from Mission Frontiers called Training for Trainers, the DCC team led participants in choosing two words to describe...

Dallas Christian College 2016 Commencement Ceremony a Worship Experience

Commencements are like funerals: black robes, serious marching, and tearful goodbyes. Commencements are like heart surgery: the staff has done it many times, but for the patient and family, it’s a first. But they are also like birth—celebrated with hope and fear, joy and love. Literally, “commencement” goes back to the Latin root that means “to begin,” but the prefix on it, the “com-“ is an intensive: that is, a commencement is an intense beginning. No question about that. On Friday evening, May 13, the class of 2016 experienced all of this in a glorious service of praise to...

Each year, Dallas Christian College sends faculty, staff, and students across the globe. Their experiences are transformative as participants immerse themselves into unique cultures, grow closer in their friendships, and also have a substantial amount of fun. For months prior to departure, students work, save, and raise the money needed to go, and also spend a substantial amount of time learning about the cultures of the people groups they will soon encounter. They prepare with purpose, for they will go for the same reason that missionaries have gone throughout the Church age: to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ...
