God’s call may be priceless, but the men and women who answer a call to ordained ministry face significant educational expenses.
In 2002, members of the former Kansas West Conference started a bold initiative to provide scholarships to seminary students in an effort to alleviate the debt load for newly ordained clergy.
A seminary education is expensive because it is provided by private institutions with well-trained faculty. Seminary graduates may carry debt from undergraduate studies as well as $30,000 or more in debt from seminary when they complete their studies and begin full-time ministry in the Kansas West Conference.
To make a contribution, send a check made out to the Great Plains Conference, PO Box 4187, Topeka KS 66604. Be sure to write Seminary Scholarship Endowment on the "memo" line.
