B. H. Carroll Theological Seminary “coming home” to FBC Arlington’s Wade Building

B. H. Carroll Theological Seminary, which will officially become a part of East Texas Baptist University in late 2024, is making a move from its offices in Irving to the location where it originally began—in downtown Arlington, Texas.

The seminary’s offices will occupy a floor of First Baptist Church’s Wade Building, a six-story office building adjacent to the church’s main campus. The move also means B. H. Carroll’s annual Ph.D. colloquies, graduations, and other conferences will be held on site, for the first time since it left the location for Irving in 2015.
