Crisis Classes

Special Topics Courses Equip Students to Lead in Crises

The words crises, pandemic, shutdowns, frustration, unemployment, and more have been at the top of world-wide news. In response, DBU provided a series of special topics courses that empowered students to develop a biblically informed approach towards COVID-19 and other crises leaders may face.

Commissional Corner

The Commissional Corner: Ministry Reimagined

This year we experienced the reality of virtual ministry. Although there are still a few kinks to work out, we are thankful for all of the good that God has done in the midst of COVID-19. We asked MAGL professor Dr. Mark Alexander how this particular season has impacted ministry inside and outside of his classroom.

Jim Hutchinson

Painting an Unbidden Narrative

At its heart, Jim Hutchinson’s career in art— from illustrating maps for Abeka books as a college student, to refining his art in New York, to now serving at DBU — has this mission statement, of sorts: to cause an “unbidden narrative to unfold” in the minds of his viewers.

Bob Brooks

Dr. Bob Brooks: Glorifying Christ through the Musical Arts

“Truly, bloom where you’re planted,” Brooks said of his dizzying but exhilarating professional journey. “It’s all been an unplanned journey. After graduating from seminary, I thought I’d be a minister of music at a local church for 40 years. It didn’t happen that way. It happened a wonderful way.”

IGE

Power-Sharing in Afghanistan

Although the United States and the Taliban signed a deal in February, insurgency across Afghanistan has increased in the last few months. The United States is set to take a less prominent role than it has historically, while the Afghan government itself wrestles with the question of how to resolve internal conflict amidst a new power-sharing deal.

Todd

Prepared to Answer Faith's Hardest Questions

Along his vocational path, Dr. von Helms has encountered honest but common questions posed to the Christian faith by culture and recognized that young believers from evangelical backgrounds, much like he was, are not often prepared to handle them.

Dr. Jared Brandt Shares his Outlook on Faith and Education

We had a chance to chat with Dr. Brandt about his philosophy of education, the way he integrates faith into his academic discipline, and what he loves about being called by God to teach and mentor students at DBU.
