Thanks from Our Seminarians

Posted by Lindy Keffer on

The First Pres Foundation is committed to building the Church of the future by underwriting seminary education for students working toward ordained ministry. 


In 2016, the First Pres Foundation supported six seminarians at four different universities in three different degree programs. 



Several of our supported students delivered a heart-felt with a year-end thanks in December 2016: 

“God has placed within me a strong heart for the Church and a deep compassion for those who feel they are alone and don’t belong. Your financial aid allows me to focus more wholly on my education and journey in ministry rather than the stress of finances. Thank you for being God’s vessel through which He has poured His grace upon me!” – Matthew

"Only a small percentage of people in the world are afforded the opportunity to study the things of God on the seminary level. I do not take this privilege lightly, and I am so grateful to the First Pres Foundation for helping to fund my pursuit of a theological and pastoral education... Your gifts are helping to prepare young leaders like me for the future of the church." – Chuck

"How can I even begin to properly express my gratitude? I am truly grateful for having the incredible opportunity to pursue a Masters of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary. ... One of the things that I have been praying for is that God would not only fill my mind with knowledge of Himself, but that he would also be filling up my heart for His story and His glory. That has happened this fall, and for that I am grateful! Thank you all who have helped make this journey even possible for me. Your generosity has opened doors I never would have imagined being open for me. I thank God for you and for the way that you have helped me, and others, propel forward into where God has called!" – Matt
