Pray NOW – December 2023

As we come to the end of this year, we want to say a huge THANK-YOU for your prayers on behalf of Dallas Christian College! Your prayers are making a difference as more students are being educated and mentored for Kingdom work. You can read below how God has answered your prayers and see additional prayer needs and concerns that we want to share.


And you are helping us by praying for us. (2 Corinthians 1:11a NLT)

You Prayed…God Answered!



Praise God for the more than 150 students, faculty, and staff who attended the International Conference on Missions (ICOM) in Oklahoma City! DCC was very present at the conference and hosted a “Partners of DCC” event for alumni and friends. Many of our students were deeply impacted by the three-day event, and we are grateful for those who gave generously to make this spiritual experience possible.


Praise God for continuing to lead us to the right people to fill critical staff and coaching positions! We praise God for the approval of our new undergraduate degrees in Criminal Justice and Sports Science as well as our Masters degree in Transformative Ministry that will launch on January 8, 2024.



Praise God for the 20 students and 10 staff members who participated in the Rooted Discipleship Experience hosted by Compass Christian Church. This program will be the foundation for our spiritual formation program in the coming years, and we are excited to see what God does in the lives of our students as we move forward into Spring, 2024.



God continues to bless the College through the generosity of our ministry partners! We have received several significant (and unexpected!) gifts in recent months and are excited to announce that we have received more than $1.7 million toward our $5 million NOW Campaign goal! We are grateful for our ministry partners who give so generously to DCC and its mission.

NOW is the time to pray.


spiritual growth and retention

Pray for the current students who have been challenged by this year’s Student Development Theme: Belong, Believe, Become. These students have been challenged to find community here at DCC while growing in their Christian beliefs and becoming mature disciples of Jesus Christ.

Pray for those students who have a desire to be here at DCC but are struggling financially, academically and/or spiritually.


NOW CAPITAL CAMPAIGN-worley student life center

The NOW Campaign continues to move forward with plans for increased scholarships and facilities initiatives, including the Worley Student Life Center. Pray that God would open doors to those ministry partners who have a passion for the mission of Dallas Christian College and a desire to invest in the lives of our students. Pray for wisdom and guidance regarding our NOW Capital Campaign as well as our scholarship and facility plans.



Pray for our Enrollment Management team as they have conversations and interactions with prospective students who are making decisions about their education plans for the Spring. Pray that God would move in the lives of the students that need to be here at DCC, especially during these last critical weeks leading up to the start of the new semester in January.



Continue to pray for wisdom and clear direction as President Smith and the DCC Cabinet consider future financial decisions as part of the NOW Capital Campaign. Pray for guidance on the timing for the Worley Student Life Center renovations. Pray for wisdom and discernment regarding several key staff positions that remain open.
