Scofield church has had a long relationship with Dallas Theological Seminary. The founding President of the Seminary, Lewis Sperry Chafer, was also the pastor of the church in the 1920’s. Always a missionary minded congregation, the church was involved in the founding of CAM International, the Southern Bible Institute of Dallas, and today sponsors or supports over fifty missionary families around the globe.
Scofield Christian School began in 1961 and remains an elementary school committed to excellence in Christian Education. Some long tenured senior pastors have served at Scofield including Dr. Harlin Roper (1927-1972) and Dr. Neil Ashcraft (1972-1997). Senior Pastor Dr. Jeff VanGoethem was welcomed to Scofield in 2009.
