Gifts to the Kingdom Scholars Term Endowed Scholarship Fund provide tuition assistance for deserving Master of Divinity (MDiv) students pursuing careers in full-time ministry. The heart behind this scholarship is to equip students for a life in God’s service. Scholarship recipients are full-time MDiv students who demonstrate high academic achievement and are committed to pursuing a career in full-time ministry upon graduation.
“It’s because of people like you that leaders are being equipped with the skills needed to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in our chaotic and changing world. Thank you for believing in us and continuing to support those who hope to pursue a degree in higher education that is focused and centered on God and the ways He moves in the world.”
