GoalThe goal of this project is to support the Mexicali Seminary in Baja, California by providing funding for student scholarships, upkeep of the library and maintenance of the seminary’s facilities.
SummaryThis project seeks to raise $20,000 annually in order to train pastors and church planters in Mexico and Baja, California.
DescriptionTraining and equipping of women and men called to leadership roles is the key to effective and long-term health of God’s church. But for many, the cost of a seminary education is out of reach. This project will provide 40 scholarships each year, reducing the amount a student must pay and allowing them to concentrate on their studies. Scholarships cover tuition, housing, meals and attendance at an intensive conference. The Mexicali Seminary will train these leaders through residential programs, extension classes and on-line formation in Biblical, Pastoral and Theological Studies. This project will provide leadership in the local churches and new church starts of Baja California and other areas where those being equipped live and are sent. This project will fund the seminary’s library keeping it up to date with new books and on-line platforms and resources. The library serves the residential community and the needs of the associate theological programs in local churches, as well as MTS – the Masters in Theological Studies program through Palmer Seminary in Pennsylvania. Funds will also cover maintenance and the cost of upkeep of the Mexicali Seminary facility in areas that are not covered by the operating budget.
Suggested GiftsA gift of $1,000 will provide up to 4 scholarships in one year. $2,000 will help with upkeep of the seminary’s library. $2,500 will help with maintenance of the seminary’s facility. $5,000 will provide up to 20 scholarships.
Prayer RequestsPray that hundreds of additional people will be affected by this project as these future leaders will minister to small groups or large congregations. Pray that people in other parts of Latin America and the Caribbean will be affected because of the on-line training courses and the sending of Mexican cross-cultural servants.
