Those watching were impressed by the playing on both sides. But what happens after DCC baseball?  Professional baseball?  Ministry?  “Get a job”? A visit to the dugout revealed that, if the alums who showed up for the game are any indication, Coach Denny Dixon’s folks are doing what they ought to be doing. Though this is a highly unscientific survey, everyone was happy to tell me what they are...

Graduation Felt Like a Reunion | Andrew Heisler ’14

Alums in the Field:  Andrew Heisler, Newberg, Oregon Andy Heisler made his first trip to Texas in May of 2014—for his DCC graduation.  It was his first trip because all his DCC work, basically the last half of his degree, had been done through DCC’s FLEXcampus®. “Graduation felt like a reunion,” he says, “because the sense of community that had been built in the online format was real.

Charles Faust continued that “little” work, which today has morphed into one of...

DCC Graduate Josh Howard Releases New Book

Out of his abundance of experiences in India, former DCC student, Dr. Ajai Lall, and his son-in-law and DCC alum Josh Howard, have written a powerful book about a different kind of extremism — an extremism of love rather than hate. Several years ago, Mark Worley, VP for Advancement, and a group led by Drew Sherman, lead pastor of Compass Christian Church, traveled to India for a youth conference organized by Dr. Lall. After the youth conference, where hundreds of young people accepted Christ, the group had a private meeting with five men who had been persecuted for their...
