EMMANUEL CHURCH MINISTRY
IF YOU ARE A YOUNG PERSON TRAINING FOR MINISTRY YOU MAY BE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR AN EMMANUEL CHURCH SCHOLARSHIP
"I am so thankful to be a part of Emmanuel Church. As a church family they have invested in me and supported me in a number of different ways, this scholarship being one of them!"
Annaliese, Camping Ministry Trainee
Thank you for your interest in Ministry Scholarships at Emmanuel Anglican Church, Glenhaven. Our church loves supporting young adults and believes in partnering with young people as they train for gospel ministry.
We recognise that, especially with rising costs of living, young people who are engaged in full-time theological education and/or ministry traineeships are facing a number of financial challenges.
This scholarship is a not a salary or a stipend. But it is our hope that this scholarship will enable young people to focus on their ministry and training, rather than being concerned about rental costs, petrol, and other expenses. In so doing they can give themselves fully to the work of the Lord.
A successful recipient of a Ministry Scholarship will receive either a part-scholarship ($2500 PA) or a full scholarship ($5000 PA).
Our prayer is this scholarship will be a blessing to young people, but also a blessing to Emmanuel Church Family as we partner with you in your gospel ministry.
To qualify for a scholarship an applicant must be a member of Emmanuel Church who:
Is a mature Christian person
Has a demonstrated record of servant-hearted gospel ministry
Is experiencing financial need
Is under 30 years old at the time the first scholarship is awarded
Is engaged in a full-time ministry traineeship or full-time theological study
Has not been a recipient of the Emmanuel Church Scholarship on two previous occasions (in short, you can’t apply for a third year!).
Who is eligible to be a recipient?
Please note that we are describing the fund as a scholarship because this is the simplest “plain english” description, however the fund operates legally as a necessitous circumstances fund (a fund to assist people in financial need).
If you meet the criteria above, we'd love to hear from you. Please find out more or apply using the link below.
