A Scholar's Story
Message from Student Ministry Scholar, Corey Wagonfield


Your monetary gift and prayers have helped me to live into my calling and allow me to focus on my seminary work instead of stressing about finances. I thank God for bringing you into my life and I pray nightly that God continues to shower blessings upon you. I hope that if funds are available, you would consider offering me another scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year.
