The purpose of the Fund is to equip those who are called to preach/teach. It is our belief that those who are called to preach/teach scripture can be better equipped for this ministry if they are afforded the opportunity to visit various sites where biblical events occurred. Denver Seminary facilities this by offering student trips to Greece/Turkey and Israel/Jordan. However, for many students this is a financial hardship and they are unable to take advantage of this. Note that going on these trips also strengthens the relationships being developed among both students and faculty. The Fund will cover the travel costs (ie. flight, hotel, food) up to $5,000.
- Recipient(s) will be a full-time student (as established by the Seminary catalog) at Denver Seminary, enrolled in the Master of Arts Program in Biblical Studies, (New Testament or Old Testament). Secondary qualification will be given for a full-time Master of Divinity student.
- Recipient must demonstrate financial need and be in good academic standing. If no qualified student needing financial aid applies, a student in good academic will be chosen.
- Recipient will be a second or third year student in either program.
