God's Word for God's World

We have been overwhelmed by the success of the God’s Word for God’s World Centennial Campaign. Truly, the Lord has done immeasurably more than we could’ve asked or imagined. It is our deepest joy to invite you, our alumni, to play an integral role in our DTS family by building the Bridge Fund!

God can use what is ordinary or simple to accomplish something incredible. Gifts of any size can make a significant difference, and we invite you to give in honor or memory of a faculty or staff member who has impacted your life, your walk with the Lord, or your seminary journey!

“We have come to live in a nation that is traumatized by vast cultural, social, and intellectual disorientation resulting in a massive reorientation of values. To speak meaningfully into this emergent generation, to grapple with and find hope for the future, we must train a new generation of men and women who possess the skills and insights to speak relevantly in this time of unprecedented change. We must have a new generation of teachers in our Seminary who can mentor students to face a world that we were not methodologically trained to encounter. 

My greatest desire is that we, as the faculty, will serve the students by being models of the Christ who loved us and gave Himself up for us, that they will see the example of 'Christ in and through us.'”

"There is no better way to preserve the values of DTS than for our faculty to be involved with training and mentoring the next generation of seminary professors. By donating to the Faculty Campaign, we each have the opportunity to invest in the future of DTS and more successfully pass the baton to those who will come after us."

"I feel honored to be a part of an institution that, for one hundred years, has provided students with formative biblical and theological training to serve the church. Continuity is crucial for the mission of DTS, and the Bridge Fund helps ensure the continual building of the faculty to equip students for kingdom service."

Dr. Joseph Lee

"DTS faculty members have significant influence over the seminary family by setting an example for them to follow. Our constituents take note of what we think is important. When asked to financially support the mission and vision of DTS, many will ask, 'What commitment has the faculty made?' We all need to lead by example."

“My greatest hope for DTS students, me included, is that we would be so filled with the love of Christ that our joy cannot be contained. That we as a student body would enthusiastically go out and seek our neighbors in order to teach them truth and love them well. I am so thankful for the faculty and staff who train, equip, and encourage students to go out and share the joyous news of the gospel with the world."

“As I envision the future of DTS, I see an institution that is filled with diversity, love, joy, and fellowship with one another as we search the deep things of God and march toward blessing the world through the good news of King Jesus.”

“A new generation of faculty is important to DTS because the river of knowledge and love needs to keep flowing from generation to generation. I would encourage others to give out of the love and gratitude in your heart that can be shown in a visible way.”

"A faculty mentor brought me into department meetings and the classes he taught, even inviting me to teach. He modeled being even more righteous in private than in public—which helped shape me both into being a better professor and becoming a more devoted Christ-follower. The Bridge Fund makes possible such mentoring. Because at DTS, we’re not just filling jobs. Through the works of the Spirit, we’re helping to make disciples."

Dr. Sandra Glahn

Media Arts and Worship


"I’m both excited and encouraged by the Bridge Fund Campaign. As a campus dean and newer member of the DTS faculty, I’ve experienced first-hand the benefits of new faculty being shepherded by our amazing veteran faculty. The Bridge Fund Campaign continues DTS’s legacy of placing people at the heart of Teaching Truth and Loving Well. The resources generated by the campaign will facilitate not only the recruitment of world-class Godly servant leaders to the seminary, but also will prepare them to better meet the needs of our students."

Dr. Jake Gross

Dean of DTS-Atlanta


"When I joined the faculty almost a quarter century ago, our department chair Michael Lawson provided a stellar launch by coaching me for three years. Now I have the privilege of walking with my future replacement as she ramps up to equip future leaders. Giving to the Bridge Fund will provide this opportunity for other future faculty. I can’t think of a better investment to ultimately strengthen God’s work here and worldwide and bring Him glory!"
