Over the past 50 years of ministry, PBC has trained a great number of Ministers Fellowship International leaders; and it is with this strong relationship in mind that we offer this scholarship.
The purpose of the scholarship is for MFI Lead Pastors, that are active members, to have the opportunity to assist upcoming leaders in their local church attain formal ministry training through PBC.
This has become a very popular scholarship and it is increasing the number of MFI applicants each year. The qualifications for it are as follows:
- The Senior Pastor needs to refer the student to PBC (the Pastoral Reference must come from the Senior Pastor)
- The Senior Pastor’s MFI membership must be current.
- Students must attend Portland Campus and be enrolled in full-time credits.
CBC applicants are excluded from this scholarship at this time and this scholarship cannot be used in conjunction with other PBC/CBC scholarships, grants or discounts.
The student applicant should first go through the application process and be accepted to PBC before the Senior/Lead Pastor submits this form. The Senior Pastor will be notified when the student has been awarded the scholarship so that they have the opportunity of informing the student if they so choose.
In the event that the Senior Pastor is the parent of the student applicant, the alternate pastoral reference form will suffice. However, the benefit will be associated with the Senior Pastor, not the alternate reference.
This is a one-time scholarship for students attending our Portland Campus. The funds are disbursed in two semesters $500 in the Fall and $500 in the Spring and they are divided into 5 equal monthly installments of $100. If the student finds it necessary to withdraw at any time, the balance of the scholarship is forfeited.
