Financial aid for MLC students

Dear Friend,

A couple weeks ago you should have received a letter where I talked about the amazing opportunities God is giving our church body, and the major role Martin Luther College (MLC) plays in that mission. Jesus is opening doors to many more mission fields across the world. Now is the time to equip even more Christian witnesses to share Christ’s love with the world!

To help our students afford their ministerial education and avoid student debt as they begin serving in our congregations, MLC offers churches and individuals participation in the Congregational Partner Grant Program (CPGP). Through the CPGC, MLC matches dollar for dollar, up to $1,000 per year, the gifts congregations apply to the tuition of their students at MLC. Gifts from individuals like you help provide the MLC matching funds to those congregational gifts.

I have good news to share! Since that letter went out people have already given $55,000 to MLC for matching funds. This will help match the $1,000 grants that churches provide for 55 students!

We’d like to help even more students, particularly as families may be struggling through the pandemic. We cannot let the cost of college deter anyone from pursuing ministry training.

Will you consider a donation today? We—and particularly our students—are very grateful for your help!

In Christ,
Rich Gurgel
President, Martin Luther College
