Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come basis for those who meet the following criteria:
— Pastoral staff of a small (under 200) SBC church— Church is either unable OR unwilling to pay your expenses to attend— Agrees to use the funds only for Conference & Convention-related expenses— Agrees to attend all Conference & Convention meeting sessions
The number of scholarships awarded will be based on the amount donated by sponsor churches. Each recipient will receive $1,000 toward Conference & Convention expenses. A check will be mailed directly to your church, made out to your church, with instructions that the funds only be used to send you to this year's SBC Pastors' Conference & Annual Meeting. The funds may be used for hotel, flight, gas, rental car, meals, books/resources while at the convention, etc. If you do not attend the meeting, we ask that the funds be returned. If the majority of funds are used the remainder does not need to be returned.
