Gifts to the African Student Endowed Scholarship Fund are vital for equipping African church leaders to engage the needs of the world with the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture. In parts of Africa, a tumultuous history and frequent civil unrest has led to political and economic instability, increased populations with AIDS, and areas of extreme poverty. As a result, many students from Africa arrive with few material possessions and little financial backing. Their experience, however, inspires them to want to learn and grow as Christian leaders so they can make a difference in their home countries. Denver Seminary seeks to provide these students with significant scholarship assistance, while financial support from churches and others often covers room and board. Your contributions help us to meet the financial need of these young leaders who desire to attend seminary.
“In Christ, the issues of ethnicity are demolished. Jesus is the basis of unity for all believers.”– Denver Seminary graduate
