2018 Seminary Debt Reduction Grants

The  CENTRAL ASSOCIATION
of the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA NEVADA CONFERENCE of the
UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST

2018 Seminary Debt Reduction Grants

In the last few years, Central Association has been blessed with extremely generous offerings for Members in Discernment.  These offerings are received at Ordination and Installation services and at our spring and fall Association meetings.  We are aware that one of the reasons the giving is so generous is because of the outstanding quality of Authorized Minsters coming into Central Association, especially our younger clergy.  We are also aware that many of our newly ordained Ministers carry a significant amount of debt from Seminary education.  In 2016 we were able to award seven Authorized Ministers Seminary Debt Reduction grants in the amount of $1,500 each.  In 2017 we awarded six Authorized Ministers grants of $1,000 each.  This year (2018), Central Association is offering an opportunity for those who were Ordained and Installed as Authorized Ministers from November 1, 2007 to the present and who carry at least $10,000 of seminary educational debt to apply for a Seminary Debt Reduction Grant in the amount of $800.  Applicants must be members of Central Association.

The grant will be paid directly to the institution holding your debt obligation and is intended to be in addition to your regular debt repayment.

Deadline for submission of the grant application is December 31, 2018.  Grants will be awarded early in 2019.

A Seminary Debt Reduction Grant Application form may be requested from Virginia Arroyo at the Conference Office (arroyo@scncucc.org.)

Applications should be submitted to:  Rev. Lorraine Ceniceros, Chair of the Church and Ministry Committee (Central Association):  Lorraine.Ceniceros@gmail.com

Blessings,
The Executive Committee of Central Assocation
