Welcome from the Student Council President

Welcome to the 2018-2019 academic year! I am delighted to serve as your Student Body President here at DTS. Together the Student Council functions as your connection to the executive committee and desires to create a community of authentic relationships that reflect Christ. Our vision is a student body that depicts Christ’s global church, not only through our diverse cultures, ethnicities, histories, and testimonies, but also through our love for one another and ever-growing ability to listen and learn as we walk WITH each other. We warmly welcome you with grateful hearts as you join us online, in Dallas, or at another campus, and we pray that God’s matchless grace meets you in every moment from now until graduation. We look forward to meeting you and hope you join us in the events we have prepared for you throughout this year. God has called us to this seminary for such a time as this. We are ecstatic we get to walk the journey together WITH our faithful Lord and WITH each of you. 
By His Grace,
Alyssa Brown
Student Council President
