“With the support of this award, I will be better able to focus on the academic and spiritual aspects of this course of study, even as I prepare to give back to the context from which I came.” –Taniecia
Every year the Alvera Mickelsen Memorial Scholarship (AMMS) provides financial assistance to women who are pursuing a master’s degree in a ministry field related to preaching, communicating, writing, youth ministry, pastoral, or nonprofit work.
Alvera Mickelsen, a CBE founder and its first board chair, was a prophetic leader and gracious ambassador of biblical equality for women. The scholarship is made possible through the generosity of Alvera’s family and YOUR gifts. Since the fund was established, we have been able to award fourteen scholarships over the past five years.
Join us in affirming women’s leadership and their call to ministry by contributing to the AMMS fund and helping us provide three more $6,000 scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year.
Statistics prove that educating and empowering women leads to human flourishing for the entire community. If more women are empowered to exercise their gifts as God intends, imagine what it would do for the church and the world!
