Don Regier, associate professor emeritus in the EML dept, and Dr. Mike Lawson, senior professor of EML, recall the heritage and history of DTS through their experiences.
DTS Heritage Week (Fall 2019)
Professor Don Regier is Associate Professor Emeritus of Educational Ministries and Leadership and Director of Special Projects in Media and Communications. He is the son of a Mennonite pastor, and he always knew that he would spend his life in ministry. He made his first slide show at age six with waxed paper and a flashlight! His passion is to minister through art, technology and storytelling. He teaches a Media Presentations class at DTS and he’s been married to the prettiest Kansas farm girl for 55 years.
Dr. Mike Lawson is Sr. Professor Educational Ministries and Leadership and initiated the DEdMin program. He invested seventeen years in pastoral work and Christian education before returning to teach at DTS in 1986. His special concern for Christian education in the developing world has guided his international preaching and teaching schedule to scores of countries around the world. He’s been married to the prettiest girl at the University of North Texas for 54 years.
