In 2013, Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS) and Logos Bible Software (Logos) entered into a first-of-its-kind partnership that equips DTS students with digital theological resources. Rather than requiring students to purchase Logos on their own, this new partnership enabled students in every degree program to have access to the best tools and resources on their computers and mobile devices the first day of classes. When students graduate, they have a core library that stays with them throughout their life and ministry.
Approximately 3,200 students have now received Logos as part of the partnership. In cooperation with Logos, DTS was able to create a custom library designed for graduate-level theological study including technical linguistic works and resources by DTS faculty and alumni. This includes packages specifically designed for DTS’s Chinese and Spanish-speaking students.
Since the outset of the partnership, Logos representatives have been visiting DTS’s campuses to provide live training. This past fall, Chris McMaster, a Logos Master Trainer and Logos employee, relocated to Dallas in order to serve DTS more directly. Chris is now permanently working on the Dallas campus and is excited to assist the faculty and serve students by providing more training opportunities throughout the semester. With an office on campus, Chris will be available to equip students inside and outside of the classroom and help faculty develop new assignments to help students learn Logos within the DTS curriculum.
About Chris McMaster
Chris earned his BBA degree from Texas Tech University and his MTS degree in Old Testament from Moody Theological Seminary in Plymouth, Michigan. He served as a trainer for New Tribes Mission while teaching at New Tribes
Bible Institute in Jackson, Michigan, from 2006 to 2013.
“Our mission at Faithlife (Logos) is to use technology to equip the church to grow in the light of the Bible,” Chris remarked. “One of the most important ways we do this is by preparing the church’s future leaders to use technology that enables them to handle the Scriptures and carry out various ministry tasks more effectively. As a result, my role at DTS is an essential part of fulfilling the overall mission of the seminary to ‘equip godly servant-leaders,’ and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve such an amazing school and student body.”
DTS students can use Logos Bible Software on their desktops, laptop computers, or mobile devices. To set up a meeting with Chris and for information about his office hours and upcoming training dates, visit dts.edu/logos. To learn more about Logos Bible Software visit logos.com.
