Sadler Global Missions Center

Dallas Baptist University has been blessed with a beautiful campus. One of the features of University Hill is our buildings, many of which are modeled after traditional Colonial architecture. In the next couple weeks we are going to be highlighting a couple of our buildings on the DBU campus.

The Sadler Global Missions Center, begun in 2011 and finished in 2013, houses our Baptist Student Ministries, the International Admissions Office, the Global Missions Office, Student Affairs, the Global Leadership Program office, a global conversation lounge, two acacemic classrooms, and Piper Hall (a large student activity room), the food pantry, and the clothes closet. Designed after the Pavillion VII at the University of Virginia, this beautiful building is, in many ways, the embodiment of DBU’s mission—to produce servant leaders who are equipped to transform the world through sharing and living out the Gospel. The sole focus of the Global Missions Center is to reach the world with education, missions, and the Gospel.

In the front of the Global Missions Center is a large sculpture of a globe. Underneath the globe is the verse John 3:16 in the main eight languages spoken by the DBU student body. This monument is an excellent reminder of the Global Missions Center's purpose and mission to tell people that God sent His only Son into the world to give everyone who would believe in Him eternal life.

The inside of the Global Missions Center is filled with more reminders of its focus and purpose. From the world map reminding DBU students that they are Christ's witnesses, to the statement that every student and faculty members see as they leave the building- "You are now entering the mission field-" the entire building is devoted to equipping DBU students to share the Gospel.

On the first floor of the Global Missions Center is Piper Hall. Many of the University's student life events and spiritual life events, from banquets and socials to concerts and worship nights, are held here. All throughout the building there are multiple study areas and classrooms, as well. It is a great place to do homework and study.


The DBU campus is constantly growing and expanding to make room for our growing number of students and the changing needs of the university, and the Global Missions Center is a central part of campus life here at DBU. If you are a new student and you have not gone down the hill to see this beautiful building, it it definitely worth the walk! This is certainly an exciting time to be a student at Dallas Baptist University!
