MINISTRY STUDENT PROGRAM
Dr. Jan Daehnert
Director of Ministry Students
The Ministry Student Office is located in Pilgrim Chapel, Suite 306.
The Ministry Student Program coordinates financial assistance available to qualifying Dallas Baptist University (DBU) Ministry Students pursuing a degree in preparation for a career in vocational and bi-vocational ministry. This is an annual application process requiring students to complete the First Year Application upon initial enrollment at DBU and the Renewal Application annually thereafter. DBU seeks to support students pursuing ministry with financial assistance through the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) Ministry Scholarship and the DBU Ministerial Scholarship. Students are required to complete an application once per academic year (Fall, Spring, Summer semesters). The deadline to submit a completed application for ministerial financial assistance is October 15 for the Fall/Spring/Summer, March 15 for the Spring/Summer, and June 15 for the Summer.
Funding is available to qualifying students in the following ways:
(BGCT) Ministry Scholarship provided by the Baptist General Convention of Texas (BGCT) is available to qualifying students who are members of Baptist churches. After the first year, the BGCT Ministry Scholarship is only for students who are active in a BGCT church.
DBU Ministerial Scholarship provided by Dallas Baptist University is available to qualifying students who are affiliated with a Christian church (that holds Jesus as Lord and Savior, and who holds solely the Old Testament and the New Testament as sacred Scripture). The DBU Ministerial Scholarship is automatically awarded to students receiving the BGCT Ministry Scholarship.
