More than ever, students now are questioning the age-old “wisdom” that they should take on massive amounts of debt to finance their education. What if there was a way within the Kingdom itself for believers to support students who are following God’s call on their lives? Learn how Gordon-Conwell’s Partnership Program can empower you to graduate debt-free.
In the Old Testament, the Jubilee was a radical event that happened once every 50 years. All debts were canceled, and people were lifted out of bondage. The Partnership Program is a clear and tangible manifestation of God’s Jubilee being declared here and today, for us to “proclaim liberty throughout the land,” as it says in Leviticus 25. You can break the bonds of student debt over your life as you prepare to serve the Kingdom through the Church, workplace, or academy.
As the saying goes, it takes a village. You are not coming to seminary alone. With the Partnership Program you are bringing your entire team with you, to support you through the journey. We equip and train you in stewardship and fundraising so that you can raise up networks of support, both prayerful and financial support.
Every student’s support structure will be a unique reflection of their particular network of individual and church supporters. Some of our students have multiple sending churches, while others have none. Many of our students receive gifts through for-profits/non-profits instead of individuals. Some individual supporters get corporate matching gifts from their places of employment. No two students will have support structures that are identical, but the scenarios below provide examples of what a student’s funding goal and structure may look like.
