In recognition of National Foster Care Month, we visited with John Mark Miller, staff assistant to the DBU president, and his wife, Janelle, about how the Lord called them to pursue foster parenting.
Imagine going through more than 200 diapers a week, countless bottles, bibs, outfits, and innumerable cans of formula. This is the reality for DBU alumna, Carrie (Peterson) Jones, and her husband, Gavin, as they care for their nine-month-old quintuplets –Will, David, Marcie, Seth and Grace.
One of the biggest questions a student faces when considering college is “How am I going to pay for it?” Scholarships are one of the greatest assets making college possible, and we know that searching for them can be time consuming and frustrating. At the same time, scripture offers bold encouragement to confidently approach God’s throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need (Hebrews 4:6). As you seek the Lord’s guidance for your future, pray that He will provide for your financial needs as well. This week, we sat down with Leslie Moulton, scholarship and grant resource coordinator at DBU, and asked her some questions about where and how to look for scholarships to help with this process. Here’s what she shared with us:
On Friday, April 26, a busload of 54 junior high and high school students from West, Texas, traveled to the Dallas Baptist University campus in southeast Dallas for a Disciple Now (DNow) weekend of spiritual renewal, small group interaction, recreational games, and an outpouring of love from college students.
The purpose of Dallas Baptist University is to provide Christ-centered quality higher education in the arts, sciences, and professional studies at both the undergraduate and graduate levels to traditional age and adult students in order to produce servant leaders who have the ability to integrate faith and learning through their respective callings.
