Pray NOW – June 2023
We are so grateful for your prayers of intercession on behalf of Dallas Christian College! God is moving in miraculous ways at Dallas Christian College, and your prayers are making a difference! Take a moment to read below how God has answered your prayers and give Him praise! NOW, more than ever, we need to be people of prayer. Please intercede and pray for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead…
I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:4 NLT)
You Prayed…God Answered!
Praise God for the 37 graduates who completed their degrees and were honored at our 2023 Commencement on May 13th! 21% of the graduating class will serve in local church, para-church, or intercultural ministries. 36% will provide Christian leadership in local businesses. 18% plan to teach in the field of education.
Praise God for our generous ministry partners! God’s hand of provision continues to be evident as we seek to better serve our students and expand opportunities for them to engage in their calling. We have currently raised more than $1.4 million toward our $5 million NOW Campaign goal!
