The Jireh Foundation Scholarship invests in those who have been serving in ministry but do not have a theological education. By receiving a theological education, these students will be better equipped to teach and explain the Scriptures, minister to the hurting, and become better leaders in their ministries, churches, homes, and places of employment.
“To me, missions is simply saying yes to God’s love and extending it to others. It is my desire to offer my story to fellow sojourners who find themselves brokenhearted and knocked down so they may encounter the faithfulness and loving-kindness of God. Thank you for providing me with assistance in pursuing my passion. I will steward it with as much heart, mind, and strength as I am able.”
