In 1997, the Mustard Seed fund was established with a generous donation of $10,000. In 2001, the fund had grown to the point where the Mustard Seed Committee felt that limited disbursements from the fund could begin. Initially, the disbursements were in the form of a loan to the youth of our church. After 4 years and 34 additional donations, the Mustard Seed Committee decided in 2005 that a 4-year scholarship could be awarded. While the amount of the scholarship has been increased since the initial 4-year scholarship, the practice of awarding a 4-year scholarship continues.
It is the purpose of the Mustard Seed Scholarship Program to make a substantial financial contribution towards the higher education of a deserving youth who has been active in the life of the church. Higher education is defined as being post-High School (either college or trade school).
