The Dallas Theological Seminary has a mission to glorify God by equipping godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word and the building up of the body of Christ worldwide. They have students from over 70 denominations and 50 countries aging from 22 to 82, so anybody is welcome. They're diverse in gender, race, ethnicity, and future ministry goals.

They actually have several campuses, the main one being in Dallas. They also have one in Houston, Atlanta, Austin, Knoxville, San Antonio, Tampa, and Washington D.C. They even have a few campuses around the world - in Guatemala and China, as well as offering classes online for students that aren't in any of those areas.

Susan Edwards is the associate professor of Christian Education at the school. She has 30 years of experience in Christian education and Bible teaching, directing women's ministry, retreat and conference speaking, training teams and teachers, overseeing staff, and writing curriculum. She was a previous pastor to women at her local church and experienced healthy men and women partnerships on staff. She is the author of
quite a few works. She is a mentor professor in the new Women in Ministry concentration of the Doctor of Ministry degree and her academic interest is primarily in women's studies.

Brush Wildland Fire Trucks Seminary

A brush truck is a truck that is a combination of an all-terrain vehicle, mini-pumper, and a wilderness rescue vehicle and is used most often to fight wildfires. They usually have a 200+ gallon tank, Indian tanks, chainsaws, picks, fire rakes, and stretchers for rescue operations.

The primary role of this type of truck is to get in where main apparatuses can't, like in narrow roads, fields, or very swampy areas. They can be very useful vehicles. Here is what they look like:

There are other similar fire vehicles that can be helpful, but this one fits into the nooks and crannies that others can't.
