PARTNERING WITH CHURCHES TO PROVIDE WORLD-CLASS TRAINING FOR MINISTRY

BJU Seminary is committed to providing excellence in ministry training. We are eager to

  • Help those serving the church vocationally to be able to continue their education (pastors, assistant pastors, elders, biblical counselors, church-planters, missionaries, etc.).
  • Equip those serving in the church with further theological training (deacons, Sunday school teachers, youth leaders, etc.).
  • Raise up the next generations of Timothys within local churches and provide them the highest quality education.

Considering these goals we will partner with local churches by matching the aid given by the local church (up to $1,000 per semester) for their staff, church planters, missionaries, and members.

QUALIFications FOR THE CHURCH MATCHING SCHOLARSHIP

  1. The candidate for the scholarship must apply to BJU Seminary and be accepted as a student.
  2. A church officer must complete the application form. Once the form is received by the Seminary, the church will receive notice of approval.
  3. Once approval is received, the church will send their funds to: BJU Financial Aid, 1700 Wade Hampton Blvd, Greenville, SC 29614.
  4. Matching funds will then be applied to the student’s account. (Note: Financial aid cannot exceed costs of the education.)
  5. The student must be committed to taking at least one class per semester via in-person, livestream, advanced module, or flex class modalities.
  6. This scholarship is available to students in any of the Seminary tracks including certificate programs.

To PASTORS LOOKING TO CONTINUING THEIR EDUCATION:

Have you been looking for an affordable way to continue your education? BJU Seminary is excited to introduce you to our Church Matching Scholarship. We want to partner with you to accomplish your goal for further ministry training, whether that be your MA, MDiv, or DMin degree.

With this scholarship, you can obtain a world-class seminary education without leaving your pulpit ministry. BJU Seminary offers classes via livestream and one-week in-person modules.

Here are a couple of examples of how this scholarship can make a degree affordable for you:

  • A typical DMin load is one 4-credit course per semester. At $440* per credit hour, each course is $1,760. Your church would provide $880, and BJU Seminary would match with $880.
  • An MDiv student may choose to take two 3-credit courses per semester at $330* per credit hour. Your church would provide $990 of the $1,980 in total tuition and BJU Seminary would match with $990.

To Those OBTAINING ADDITIONAL TRAINING FOR MEMBERS OF YOUR CHURCH:

Do you have a Timothy in your ministry that is looking for great training at an affordable cost? Do you have faithful teachers and counselors looking to expand their abilities? BJU Seminary is excited to partner with you to provide next-level training for those serious about vocational ministry and for those serving in your local church ministry.

With our new Church Matching Scholarship, BJU Seminary will partner with you to help make ministerial training more affordable than ever. We will match your church’s investment in the development of your people up to $1,000 per semester. The cost of seminary training can be cut in half.

The students you send to BJU Seminary for full-time experience may qualify for additional scholarships that will reduce the cost even more. The Lord is doing great things here at BJU Seminary! We cannot wait to partner with you in the training of men and women for the work of the ministry!
