University description (as per official university website)
Near the midpoint of the twentieth century, many Texas Christians recognized the need for leadership in their churches, as well as, for starting new churches. On May 10, 1949, former missionary Vernon Newland met with forty concerned Texas church leaders. They discussed establishing a Bible college in Texas to train leaders for the Christian ministry.
Dallas Christian College (DCC) thus opened for classes on September 12, 1950. Flourishing over the years, it has grown from two downtown Dallas locations to its third location, on twenty-two acres in the historic northwest Dallas county community of Farmers Branch.
With over four thousand students in DCC's history, many graduates serve in various ministries throughout the nation and the world. Many serve to educate the evangelistic leadership of Texas and the Southwest.
Currently, DCC combines Biblical and theological studies, general education courses from a Christian world view, and courses in different professional areas with an active program of Christian service and chapel attendance.
Dallas Christian College offers three customizable programs to meet the schedule of just about any student. While each student will eventually gravitate toward one program over the others, many of DCCs students choose to take courses from two or even all three of the following programs.
