SCHOLARSHIP MINISTRY



 

 

Mission Statement:

To raise funds and award monetary scholarships to deserving graduates of Fourteenth Avenue Missionary Baptist Church.

The Scholarship Ministry originated in March, 1985.  It was initiated by Sister Shervie Holland and Circle #2.  The Committee’s responsibility is to raise funds to award as many students possible with a scholarship and monetary assistance.

The Fourteenth Avenue Missionary Baptist Church seeks candidates for its Scholarship Awards.

The Church wishes to recognize a student within its congregation who is striving for academic, spiritual and social excellence. This student should be well on his/her way to recognizing that if God’s work is to be done, it must be done through him or her.
