Levi Nord, Mulvane, and Lindsey Graber, Wichita, are the recipients of the Southwestern College United Methodist Ministry Scholarship. The scholarship is available to those students who are members of a United Methodist Church, maintain a 3.0 grade point average, and intend to pursue a form of vocational ministry.
Ashlee Alley, campus minister at Southwestern College, says that both recipients are deserving.
“Lindsey and Levi have shown a strong commitment to their local United Methodist Churches and also the ministry of the United Methodist Church in the state of Kansas,” Alley says. “Each of them has identified ways that God is calling them to continue to serve the world in ministry and we are pleased to be able to award them this scholarship.”
The scholarship awards $1,000 for the school year and allows recipients to participate in the scholarship program which includes the following: attendance to at the SC United Methodist Ministry Scholarship dinner, a meeting with a “Ministry Coach” six times a year, interaction with philosophy and religion department lecturers during the three annual lectures, a scholarship to attend Church of the Resurrection Leadership Institute, guidance in the selection of a ministry internship, and the payment of an application fee for one seminary school.
“They will be able to continue to cultivate their call to ministry through the program aspects associated with this scholarship and we are excited to see how they will continue to develop,” Alley added.
