Founding Dean of HSU’s Logsdon School of Theology Dies

Hardin-Simmons University’s first dean of the Logsdon School of Theology, Dr. H.K. Neely, died Sunday, September 22, 2013, at Providence Health Center in Waco, Texas. Neely came to HSU in 1980 as chairman of the division of religion and philosophy, and became Logsdon’s first dean in 1983 after the university received a naming gift from Charles and Koreen Logsdon. Overseeing the formation of Logsdon School of Theology and the construction of Logsdon Chapel and theology complex, Neely worked to grow the School of Theology from 172 students to more than 330 graduate and undergraduate students in just five years.During his 18 years of service at HSU, Neely oversaw the initiation of the Master of Arts degree in religion, and in 1995, the addition of the Master of Divinity degree, which he credited as one of the reasons for the growth of Logsdon.

Logsdon Seminary's new campus in the DFW Metroplex

Logsdon’s DFW extension provides the only fully accredited seminary education in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex offered by an institution affiliated with Texas Baptists. Logsdon Seminary’s degrees are accredited by SACS and by ATS, the premiere regional and national accrediting agencies for seminary education.*

Courses toward seminary degrees are offered at Valley Ranch Baptist Church in Coppell. The church’s facility is just off of the George Bush Tollway, located at 1501 E. Beltline Road. Freeways make the extension easily accessible to anyone in the Metroplex area.

Students may earn up to two-thirds of the Master of Divinity and the Master of Arts in Family Ministry degrees. While two-thirds of Logsdon’s Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Family Ministry may be earned at the DFW extension, the remaining one-third of each degree will be earned in residency at the Abilene or Corpus Christi campuses. To facilitate residency coursework for DFW students who commute to Abilene or Corpus Christi, some classes are scheduled to meet for only one-week of a term or on selected weekends.

For more information about this campus or others see the page on campus locations.

A focused visit authorized by ATS in Spring 2014 will confirm that Logsdon has the approval to offer more than 50% of these degrees.
