Finding Your Calling

Have you found your calling? Everyone has a calling, no matter how they earn their living.  In fact, Scripture is clear that every believer is called to many tasks, including loving others, making disciples, encouraging other believers, and teaching and exemplifying godliness, to name a few.  “Calling” may refer to these tasks, but it also may refer to a very specific call by God to the individual, a call, for example, to minister to unreached people in a faraway place.  In this article, “calling” refers to the way that God works through the life of a Christian to align...

The Piedmont Lectures: A Little History

Where does this annual lectureship at DCC come from?  Is it named for the Piedmont region of Italy? (No.)  The Piedmont Plateau of North Carolina?  (No.) Piedmont College in Georgia? (No.) Is it from the Piedmont Addition, a neighborhood of Dallas near Pleasant Grove? (Getting warm.) Is it from Piedmont Church of Christ, Dallas? (Yes!) For many years Piedmont Church of Christ supported Christian higher education through Southeastern Christian College in Winchester, KY, but in 1979, Southeastern closed (its campus is now a public park), and Piedmont Church of Christ began a relationship with DCC, a relationship that included...

This and That from Here and There from 1952

Another newsletter from DCC’s archives–September 1952. Noteworthy in this one are the many individuals and congregations who were helping DCC get moving, the enrollment figure of the nascent school, and the conference featuring a “thrilling” contest. Building use would probably raise some eyebrows these days, too–read closely to find that one. It is our hope that DCC’s students today–whether vocational ministers or educators or business people or psychologists or sports managers–recognize their role as members of the body of Christ and participate in the life of that body, not only in Texas but also throughout the world. May we...
