Who We Are
Holy Daniel Matthew College (Daniel Matthew College) (DMC) is an International Ecclesiastical Extended Learner Center. Founded out of the vision of the World Council of the National Assembly of Churches (WCNAC) on March 2, 1982, to provide Marketable and Occupational Competency Certificates to those held within our correctional institutions. DMC is an integrated auxiliary of WCNAC and stands under the proper will as it related to the monotheistic faith.
DMC's vision centers upon connecting the inmate's marketable and/or occupational goals to competency in applicable community standards.
Types Of Activity
Competency certificates & certifications are; Community Developers (in partnership with IPDC), Ministry, Parks & Recreation Professional, Musicians, Legal Tech or Paralegals, Barbers, Cooking, Business, and much much more. Our other activities include, but are not limited to, Counseling, Health and Fitness, Support Groups, and Legal Services. The following programs are for occupational competency and certification (free to inmates and Prisons); S.K.I.P., S.O.M.E., and T.O.M.
While centrally located within the St. Louis, Missouri area, many of our community classes are held within our local Religious Centers or churches, to support their core curriculums. That same support for competency is offered to institutions for their core curriculums, re-entry needs and their connection to inmate's marketable and occupational competency standards.
Our magazine (newsletter)While we have many newsletters, inmates within any institution will enjoy our free quarterly "Extended Learners Report" and self help certification. To obtain this newsletter, simply e-mail us and request your name to be added to the mailing list.
About Our Prison Ministry
As stated, DMC was founded by WCNAC to provide free education to inmates within our correctional centers. That vision of providing competency and certification came from a need to be that central center to connect them to applicable community standards upon their re-entry.
