Students pursuing a ministry degree at an evangelical seminary in Texas are now required to complete sexual abuse awareness training as part of their education.

Dallas Theological Seminary announced earlier this month that it’s partnering with the group MinistrySafe to provide training for ministry degree students.

Reportedly the first seminary in the nation to do so, the requirement takes effect during the fall semester, which began on Monday, and can be met via an internship offered by MinistrySafe.

DTS President Mark Bailey said in a statement, “we’re pleased to partner with MinistrySafe to equip our students to protect those who are most vulnerable.”

“There are some issues that a seminary just can’t prepare you for and that you have to learn on the job once you’re out in ministry,” Bailey said.
