Introducing our Advisory Council to the President for Unity, Diversity, and Community.

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

 

Dear Dallas Theological Seminary Family,

I am pleased to announce the formation of an Advisory Council to the President for Unity, Diversity, and Community. The formation of this team is the natural follow-up to the statement developed: Toward a Theology of Unity, Diversity, and Community. This council is not meant to replace the work of the Executive Committee of the Seminary or of the offices of Student Life or Student Council. This council has been formed on bases of the recognized needs to understand the biblical foundation of genuine unity, the desire to understand and celebrate the God-created diversities, and the aspiration to intentionally plan and promote ways to increase Christian community at DTS.

As president, I want this advisory committee to help me hear the issues that are counterproductive to the theology mentioned above, to help us address those issues in appropriate and grace-filled ways, and to brainstorm as to how DTS can equip faculty, staff, and students to model and mentor what it means to function and flourish in biblical community. Please be in prayer for this committee and the parallel prayer committee who meets regularly to take these issues and others before the Father’s throne.

Mark L. Bailey, Ph.D.

A Christian without Community Is Like a Song without Melody Growth in faith does not come about in vitro. It occurs in the womb of the church and is the work of the whole community. God created us to connect with Him and others—not...
