BSF provides community and fellowship for Black students while also educating the larger student population on the experiences and needs of people of African descent in the United States for the purpose of effective ministry to this population.


BSF supports black students by providing:

  • A Back-to-School Gathering at Dr. Woodson’s house;
  • Monthly social gatherings; and
  • Chapels and discussion lunch-events.

Annual Chapels

In support of DTS’s commitment to be culturally responsive to diversity in education, BSF coordinates two chapels each year.

  • In January, BSF coordinates chapel to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the significance of the civil rights movement in a seminary context.
  • In February, the Black History Chapel celebrates the African-American contribution to the Christian, national, and global communities.
