Dr. Dan Call
Director of Doctor of Ministry, Professor of Practical Theology


I love seeing people grow deeper in their faith and more confident in their relationship with Christ. I have been married to my wife Marlene for over four decades and constantly learning new and exciting things about her. We had two children: Elizabeth and Andrew. We lost our amazing daughter Lizzy to cancer in 2015. Our son-in-law Chris and beautiful granddaughter Sophie live here in Dallas. Our son Andy (pastor), our daughter-in-law Abby and two terrific grandsons Tripp and Ezra live in Chula Vista, California.
