We sincerely appreciate his contributions and wish him all the best in his new endeavor.”

In addition to his professional experience, Steve Golding has faithfully served the church in various roles that benefited from his leadership, financial expertise, and communication abilities. Robert McCulloch of Haynes and Boone, LLP, and current DTS board member says, “I’ve known Steve for almost 10 years through Bible Study Fellowship, where he served as a leader. He is high-energy and at ease in a group setting. People gravitate to him. . . . I think his area of giftedness is a perfect fit for the needs at the Foundation.” He and his wife, Ann (who holds a master’s degree in Biblical Studies from DTS), are members of Park Cities Baptist Church.

As president of Dallas Seminary Foundation, Steve Golding is charged with overseeing the vision, direction, organization, and administration of charitable estate and gift planning services on behalf of Dallas Theological Seminary.

For 25 years the Foundation has provided the highest quality estate and charitable gift planning services for Dallas Theological Seminary friends and the Christian community. Steve will lead us forward in greater service, helping people optimize their contributions to the Lord’s work and achieve their family’s financial goals.”

Dr. Mark Bailey, president of Dallas Theological Seminary, concurs: “I have known Steve for many years as a keen businessman, a committed follower of Christ, and a dedicated family, church and community leader. For several years Steve has felt the Lord leading him toward serving a ministry or business where he could make an eternal impact. As a result, he could not be more passionate about the mission of Dallas Theological Seminary. We could not be more pleased that he is joining our leadership team.”
