Logsdon Seminary's New Campus in the DFW Metroplex

In Spring 2014 Logsdon Seminary opened its newest campus, located in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex. The new extension provides the only fully accredited seminary education in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area 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.

Logsdon’s DFW extension is located 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 at the DFW campus may earn up to two-thirds of the Master of Divinity or the Master of Arts in Family Ministry degrees, or they may earn the complete Master of Arts (Religion) degree at the extension. DFW students pursuing an MDiv or MA in Family Ministry take one-third of their degree in residency at Logsdon’s main campus in Abilene or at the full-degree campus in Corpus Christi. To facilitate this residency coursework for DFW students who commute, some classes in Abilene and Corpus Christi are scheduled to meet for only one-week of a term or on selected weekends.

Dr. Royce Rose is the director of the DFW extension. Feel free to contact him for more information about the DFW program at 214-213-5450 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Logsdon Seminary Experiences Record Enrollment

Incoming Logsdon Students attend New Student Orientation in Fall

Logsdon Seminary Experiences Record Enrollment

Logsdon Seminary saw record enrollments in the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters. Logsdon’s steady growth is illustrated by the fact that the seminary’s all-time high enrollment in Spring 2014 was a 33% increase over the enrollment five years ago.

The seminary’s growth is due to several factors. The school’s reputation continues to grow as more and more graduates serve effectively in churches across Texas and beyond. Logsdon has also added new degree programs, now offering four fully accredited degrees: the MDiv, MA in Family Ministry, MA (Religion), and DMin. The seminary has also opened two additional extensions in recent years, bringing the number of Logsdon locations to six: Abilene, Corpus Christi, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Lubbock, McAllen, and San Antonio.

Logsdon in Israel: An Interview with the President of the Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary

Logsdon Students and Faculty with Azar Ajaj

“A minority, within a minority, within a minority.” This is how Azar Ajaj, President of Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary (NETS) describes Arab-Israeli Evangelicals in Israel. He made the comment to a group of ten Logsdon Seminary students from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas, who participated in a travel course in Israel in May.

The experience was unforgettable and life changing. The purpose of the travel course was two-fold: to gain firsthand experience in the land of the Bible, and to interact with the students and faculty of NETS. When we were not exploring various sites in the land, we were in the classroom learning from Ajaj and other faculty members at the Nazareth Seminary. These experiences provided remarkable first-hand insight into the life of Arab-Israeli Christians in Israel.

At the request of the Association of Baptist Churches in Israel, the Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary was founded in 2007, with the Scottish missionary Bryson Arthur as its first president. Ajaj has been part of the school from the beginning, first as a financial administrator and teacher, and now serving as president, a role he has held since 2013.

NETS exists to offer theological training for evangelical Arabs in order to equip and prepare them for ministry and to be leaders in their land. Ajaj explained that the mission of the seminary is three-fold: first, to provide good and adequate theological education; second, to raise up strong and capable leaders who can meet the crisis in the Middle East; and third, to be an organization of reconciliation.
