Christian Ministry Scholarship for ACU or GCU

Attention students attending Arizona Christian University or Grand Canyon University:

We desire to develop, empower, and send workers locally and globally. Informed by our dedication to the Scriptures, our mission is to cultivate and nourish healthy spiritual lives for all people. Specifically, we seek to fulfill our mission by developing workers to mobilize ministry so that Kingdom workers genuinely leave a legacy.

Developing Workers Global desires to invest in next generation leaders by equipping the saints for the work of the ministry. This scholarship is for students who meet the requirements and have a calling to full-time Christian ministry.

Students applying for a Christian Ministry Scholarship must be born-again Christians who are answering God’s call into full-time Christian ministry. These students plan to be salaried full-time ministers. Applicants must submit a letter of recommendation from their pastor along with this completed application. Scholarship recipients will meet with a ministry coach once per semester of scholarship award.
