Logsdon Seminary Offers New Programs in South Texas
As Logsdon Seminary continues steady growth at the Abilene, Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Lubbock campuses, the need for access to additional BGCT-affiliated, fully-accredited programs offered by the seminary also grows.
DMin Program Begins in San Antonio
Only three and a half years after launching the Doctor of Ministry program at Logsdon’s primary campus in Abilene, Logsdon is preparing for a January 2013 launch of the D.Min. Program at the San Antonio campus. Trinity Baptist Church, which currently serves as Logsdon’s San Antonio home for classes toward Master of Divinity courses, will also host the new D.Min. cohort. Like the existing program in Abilene, D.Min. seminars will connect ministers with Logsdon faculty, experienced ministry practitioners, gifted field supervisors, and ministry peers who partner in the give-and-take of reflection and connection so critical to the Logsdon D.Min. program. While the Abilene program has drawn exemplary students from across the state, extending the D.Min. program to San Antonio will hopefully allow more students from remote and underserved areas of Texas to participate in this highest level of professional preparation, while also imbibing the rich cultural diversity of one of the nation’s most robust metropolitan areas.
Logsdon is currently receiving applications for the January D.Min. cohort in San Antonio through November 15, 2012.

Seminary Classes Now Offered in McAllen
In addition to the new offering in San Antonio, Logsdon Seminary has been given approval by the Association of Theological Schools to now offer additional coursework at Logsdon’s McAllen extension. Students in McAllen and the Rio Grande Valley can now earn up to 49% of their Master of Divinity degree at the McAllen Extension operated in partnership with the South Texas School of Christian Studies. Logsdon began offering coursework in McAllen during the Fall 2011 semester. To date, twelve students have attend the two courses offered during the 2011-2012 school year.

BGCT Day @ Logsdon Seminary
Earlier this semester, Logsdon Seminary hosted “BGCT Day” – an event designed to celebrate the shared heritage and partnership of the school and more than 5,500 Texas Baptist-partnering congregations by connecting students, faculty, and staff with BGCT leadership. Central to the day’s event was Logsdon’s spiritual formation colloquium at which BGCT Executive Director Dr. David Hardage, led in describing the ongoing work of Texas Baptists in reaching the world for Christ. During his sermon, Hardage referenced the establishment of institutions such as universities and seminaries as one of the greatest accomplishments in the history of Texas Baptists, one which he said was crucial to our work together as well as our shared future.
After the colloquium chapel, Hardage and other BGCT leaders including Dr. Steve Vernon, associate executive director; Dr. Chris Liebrum, director for the education/discipleship center; Mr. Keith Crouch, associate director of the education/discipleship center and director of the church architecture department; and, Dr. Joe Loughlin, director for the pastor connection network joined seminarians and more than 40 area pastors and guests in Logsdon’s weekly seminary community luncheon.
Dr. Don Williford, dean of Logsdon Seminary and School of Theology, lauded the willingness of BGCT leadership to visit the Abilene campus and for their help in reinforcing understanding in the Logsdon community about this state convention with whom Logsdon and Hardin-Simmons University have exclusively partnered since 1941.
Students also took advantage of an afternoon panel discussion to ask questions about current issues in Texas Baptist life as well as initiatives and upcoming events about which they could help educate and inform the congregations in which they serve. Additionally, some in the BGCT delegation also visited classes and led seminars about the organizational structure of the BGCT, affiliated institutions, and the continued investment Texas Baptists make in providing scholarship assistance for Logsdon Seminary students serving in Texas Baptist-partnering congregations.
Both Hardage and Williford agreed that future plans would be made for “BGCT Day” to become an annual event at Logsdon. Dr. Hardage’s address as well as pictures from the event are available for viewing here.
