Stewardship giving account holders can use their giving account to request donations for any charitable purpose we have approved, including helping Bible college students through their college studies.
The following paragraphs explain this Bible College programme in a little more detail.
Read more about our visions for resourcing the Kingdom and encouraging good stewardship...
We are committed to the resourcing, training and equipping people for Christian ministry. In order to support the work of God in this way we have established funds, within Stewardship, to support students at Bible Colleges throughout the UK.
We want to see students adequately resourced during their training for future Christian ministry. However, this is much more than the releasing of funds. As many students go on to become future leaders of churches and ministries, we want to encourage good stewardship and responsible management of funds, which they will take with them into their future ministry.
Find out more about eligibility and other criteria here...
To qualify for a Stewardship recipient account linked to one of our Bible College Funds, students (or prospective students) need to complete an application form. The form includes a financial assessment, from which we set limits on the maximum level of support we are able to provide from the relevant College Fund.
Financial support (up to the maximum level of support we have determined) comes from gifts made to Stewardship for these funds; either where there is a specific preference expressed for the support of that individual student or, on rare occasion, from gifts expressed for Stewardship to use where they are most needed.
For our part, we promote generous support and good practice with givers and recipients alike. We provide support, training, encouragement and practical tools that will not only provide support for the student, but will help produce good stewardship in their future ministry.
Read more about how you can support Bible College Students using your giving account...
You can use your giving account to request donations to any one of our Bible College Fund's and specify the individual student you wish to support. Providing this student has completed our application process and been determined as eligible to receive funds from us, we will then make the donation, subject to our usual checks.
If a Bible College student is not known to us, they must first apply to be registered as a recipient using the forms on this page.
Read more about how our giving account holders are able to support Bible College students
In order to financially support the training of new generations of church and Christian ministry leaders, we have established a number of Bible College Funds.
Each Bible College Fund is primarily financed by one or more Stewardship giving account holders. givers (referred to as ‘Supporters’) who wish to support students at a named Bible College. Such supporters ask us to make a donation from their account to the particular Bible College, and may additionally express an interest in a named student studying at that College. Stewardship will consider supporting the student from the relevant College Fund, taking account of the financial needs determined during the student application process.
Students can be provided with forms which help them recruit Supporters to their particular Bible College Fund. You should however be aware that Supporters cannot ask us to consider supporting any student from a Bible College Fund where the Fund is solely funded by a relative of the student.
