GoalThis project seeks to raise $12,060 each year to provide scholarships at the Mexicali Baptist Seminary in Baja, Mexico.
SummaryMexicali Seminary scholarships make it possible for young people to follow God’s call in their lives as they study to become pastors and church planters in Mexico.
DescriptionWhat does it cost to go to seminary? In the U.S., the average for one year is $11,000. At the Mexicali Baptist Seminary in Baja, Mexico, one year costs only $1,000! But even this amount is out of reach for most seminary students in Mexico, who often come from homes and churches with very limited resources. Each year, there are approximately 20 students in need of a scholarship. The scholarship funds cover tuition, housing, meals and attendance at an intensive conference. It is anticipated that this project will increase the number of trained pastors and church planters in Mexico, as well as the number of students and graduates serving in local churches. This project will be managed by missionary Tim Long and Seminary Director Gregorio Gamboa.
Suggested Gifts$50 pays for 10% of the cost of one semester for one student $250 covers half the costs for one semester $500 pays for tuition, room and meals for a semester as well as admission to a conference with intensive courses led by guest professors
Prayer RequestsPray with Tim Long and his partners at the Mexicali Baptist Seminary that they might continue to be able to provide the much-needed pastoral and theological studies program for those God has called to be leaders in the churches in Baja, Mexico
