Welcome to Arise!

We are so glad you clicked to our page for more information about our student group. We are designed with women in mind and heart. Here you will find out more about: Who we are, what we do, and most importantly how we embody Christ in community.

The Arise Board is comprised of DTS women student leaders, who reflect an array of God-given talents and gifts, with diversity in unity. We aim to provide events that bring us together, promote growth in the knowledge and faith of our Lord Jesus Christ and invite the Holy Spirit to be present for the glory of God.

To this end, below you will find a few of our events planned for the upcoming academic year including: 

  • New Student Orientation – provides you with campus resources for women
  • New Student Luncheon – introduces you to seminary student life on campus
  • Trending Topics – invites women in ministry to speak on cultural issues
  • Arise Retreat – offers DTS women students/faculty a weekend get-a-way
  • Arise Chapel – allows us to have our own special day just for you.

On behalf of the Arise Board, we hope to see you at one of these events soon. You are welcome. Blessings in Him!

Humbly yours,

Milyce A. Pipkin

Arise President 2018-19
