Applied Ministry Projects provides the context whereby students can integrate the theoretical material gained through classroom experience with the practical opportunities of actual ministry involvement. Students are challenged by local and national speakers to do evangelism and missions at home and abroad. During the semester students take the gospel to the streets, local rescue missions, neighborhoods, to Crossover events sponsored by the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention and the Southern Baptists Convention, and on mission trips around the world. As a result, students have a richer educational experience and enter full-time ministry with a higher degree of professional confidence.
Professor Worthington serves as Director of Applied Ministry Projects, Director of Urban Ministry, and Adjunct Professor of Evangelism. He graduated from Criswell College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies in 2005 and a Master of Arts in Ministry degree with Evangelism Concentration in 2007. He is currently working on a D.Min. at SWBTS in Fort Worth.
Professor Worthington's passion in life is working with the homeless and preaching the gospel to them. He has served with First Baptist Church, Dallas, as Pastor of Inner City Chapel at Dallas Life Foundation, Minister of Evangelism, and Metro Mission Assistant Pastor.
Professor Worthington's passion for Encounter Missions stems from his early years as a Criswell College student in the early 1980's when, through an Encounter Missions assignment, he sensed God calling him to take the gospel to reach the homeless in Dallas.
