SBTS, Boyce College to offer course credit through D6 conference

Communications Staff — July 3, 2012

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary will partner with the D6 conference to offer course credit toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree. D6 is a national conference that “helps churches develop and sustain an integrated discipleship strategy that combines the relationship and influence of the church and the home.”

Students may attend the D6 pre-conference and conference in Dallas, Sept. 26-28, 2012, complete the course requirements after the conference and receive three hours of undergraduate credit, or up to six hours of master’s-level credit.

Master’s-level courses offered at the 2012 D6 conference in Dallas through Southern Seminary:

  • 35040MD Leadership and Family Ministry (3 credit hours, must attend the entire pre-conference and the conference);
  • 45260MD Discipleship and Family Ministry (3 credit hours, must attend the entire pre-conference and the conference)

Bachelor’s-level courses through Boyce College, Southern Seminary’s undergraduate school:

  • CE431MD Family Discipleship (3 credit hours, must attend the entire conference)

To defray the cost of tuition, D6 offers a discounted rate for students who enroll in these courses: $119 for the entire pre-conference and conference in Dallas (together, the pre-conference and conference cost $448 at full price). Current Boyce or Southern students should register for the course(s) through Moodle, just as any other fall course. Non-Boyce or -Southern students should register through this link. After registering, the D6 conference discount code is available by emailing

Students taking any of these courses must plan to gather for a “Family Ministry Dialog” with Randy Stinson, dean of the School of Church Ministries at Southern, and Timothy Paul Jones, SBTS associate professor of leadership and church ministry and editor of The Journal of Family Ministry and Discipleship, on Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Dallas-Frisco Convention Center. Directions to this required gathering are available from the Southern Seminary admissions booth at any time during D6 registration or during the D6 pre-conference.
