Pray Now – February 2023
NOW, more than any other time in history, we need to be people of prayer. We are asking you to pray for the opportunities and challenges that we are facing during this unique season in Christian higher education. Take a moment to read below how God has answered your prayers and give Him praise! Thank you in advance for your continued prayers on behalf of the students, coaches, faculty, and staff of Dallas Christian College.
You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. (Psalm 86:5 NIV)
You Prayed…God Answered!
2023 SPRING ENROLLMENT & RETENTION
STUDENT SPIRITUAL GROWTH
As we shared last month, we have witnessed numerous testimonies of the Holy Spirit’s work in the lives of our students. Thank you for praying for the spiritual growth of our students and for a moving of God’s Spirit on our campus!
Praise God for the generosity of our current and new ministry partners that have given recently to Dallas Christian College! God’s hand of provision is very evident as we continue to move forward to better serve our students and expand opportunities for them to engage in their calling.
Now Campaign - Worley Student Life Center
God continues to lead us as we move forward with the NOW Capital Campaign. We are extremely excited about DCC’s future and will announce detailed plans for our facilities initiatives, including the Worley Student Life Center, in the coming weeks and months. Thank you for your faithful prayers!
NOW is the time to pray.
SUMMER & FALL ENROLLMENT
While we are praising God for our good enrollment and retention numbers, we would ask you to begin praying for our Enrollment Management team as they have conversations and interactions with prospective students who are making decisions about their education plans for the Summer and Fall terms. The next Crusader Preview Day is scheduled for April 20, 2023.
NOW CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
The NOW Campaign is moving forward with exciting plans for increased scholarships and facilities improvements. Continue to 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 and our scholarship/facilities initiatives.
BUDGET AND PERSONNEL DECISIONS
Continue to pray for wisdom and clear direction as President Smith and the DCC Cabinet consider financing 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 the new academic programs that are currently being considered for the future. Pray that God would lead the right people to fill crucial staff positions that are currently open at the College.
