ELKHART, Indiana — For the past 30 years an endowed scholarship at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) has helped dozens of students pursue pastoral leadership education, and now AMBS has begun a campaign to celebrate the aid given and raise funds for continued student support.
Since its inception in 1990, the Paul M. and Bertha M. Miller Pastoral Leadership Scholarship has benefited 38 graduate students at the Elkhart, Indiana, seminary with $120,419 in tuition aid.
One of the recipients of this scholarship is Sue Short, a member of the pastoral team at Zion Mennonite Church in Archbold who is pursuing a Master of Divinity degree. “I came to AMBS as a congregant who had been tapped on the shoulder and who had felt the calling toward pastoral ministry,” she said. “The support of this scholarship has been vital to me as I continue to explore and lean into God’s direction for my life.”
As part of a 30-year anniversary campaign, AMBS’s Advancement Team and the donors’ four children are seeking to add $30,000 to the fund — $1,000 for every year in which it has aided students. To learn more about the campaign, please see http://bit.ly/AMBSScholarshipCampaign.
