GIVING TUESDAY – NOVEMBER 30, 2021
This year, Herald of Truth has been at several youth events and University Lectureships, and it is truly encouraging to meet so many evangelistically minded teens! It occurred to us that this would give us a great opportunity to evangelize college campuses through these young people.
This Giving Tuesday, we are asking for funding for the “Baxter Scholarship Fund.” When Bastell Barrett Baxter was working with Herald of Truth in the 60s and 70s, he made it a point to take young people on campaigns and equip and encourage them to share their faith in Jesus. We are establishing a scholarship in his name to follow his example.
This scholarship will be awarded to students who are dedicated to sharing their faith in Jesus on their college campus. There will be an application and vetting process for those desiring the scholarship, as well as evangelistic training and accountability while in school. We believe this scholarship will make an eternal difference in the lives of young people!
The question people have asked me since we announced this scholarship is, “How much is the scholarship and how many will you be awarding?” The answer to this question will be determined by how large the fund becomes, and the size of the fund is dependent upon gifts from good people like you!
We would like for this to be a $1,500 annual scholarship. Meaning, a four-year student would receive $6,000 in scholarship money! We would also like to gift several of these each year. We believe if we invest in these students today, we are actually making an investment in the security of the church of tomorrow.
Will you help us fund the Baxter Scholarship this giving Tuesday?
You can give in one of two ways:
1) You can give online below.
2) You can mail a check in to Herald of Truth – Giving Tuesday, PO Box 2439, Abilene, TX 79604
And you don’t have to wait for Giving Tuesday to give. All gifts receive from this appeal will be applied to Giving Tuesday and the Baxter Scholarship Fund.
Can we count on you to help equip and encourage a few exceptional young people to share their faith in Jesus on their college campuses?
Thank you in advance!
