History

On 10 May 1949, Vernon Newland met with 40 concerned Texas church leaders to discuss establishing a Bible college in the Dallas area to train men and women for the ministry. Dallas Christian College opened for classes in Downtown Dallas on September 12, 1950. The present campus is located in Farmers Branch, a suburb just north of Dallas. The school has grown much and has trained over two thousand students for the ministry. It is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education.[1]

Athletics

DCC has men’s and women’s basketball and soccer teams as well as the addition of a men's baseball team as of fall 2009. They compete in the NCCAA and the ACCA.

Concert Choir

They go on an annual choir tour where they sing at community churches across the country. In 2006 they joined the SMU Meadows Choir to sing at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
