A challenge for seminary students is gaining ministry experience. At Christ Chapel, residents will discover how God has uniquely gifted them with opportunities to serve and lead, propelled by our grace-driven core values.
Christ Chapel is investing in you. We will invest $1,500 per month (pre-tax) over 22 months. That’s $33,000.
Christ Chapel will also pay half of your seminary tuition and gift an Apple MacBook or PC laptop during your training.
The Master of Arts in Christian Leadership degree from Dallas Theological Seminary costs approximately $36,000. Each resident will be responsible for roughly $18,000. If more financial aid is needed, options can be discussed with DTS.

Christ Chapel Bible Church’s ministry involves three different campuses and our online broadcast.
Christ Chapel’s training will be done in three phases:
Phase one will focus on leadership and development. Within the first semester, residents will be introduced to various foundations of what drives our ministries. They will be involved with these teams:
Phase two will start at the second semester. During this time, residents will now be familiar with most of these departments but will be investing most of their time with their top three preferences. By this time, they will find their niche and be able to begin specializing in their craft. They will model their spiritual formation and daily meetings with their mentor(s), department(s) and team(s).
Phase three will begin at the second year. By now, residents will hopefully be masters of their own schedules. They will now have minimized their focus, spending most of their time with their top choice. Residents will be expected to meet with their mentor(s), department and teams.
