The Northern Baptist Education Society for generations has been supporting students as they become prepared for the ministry, and now we have the opportunity to help educated pastors serving local churches. Again, this year we are trying out a new program to reduce the financial barriers facing recent graduates coming to serve in local churches in Northern New England by creating a Loan Repayment Assistance Program. We seek a creative solution that will work against prevailing trends to encourage educated pastors to come serve our local churches in our regions.
Here are some guidelines for this program. To qualify, applicants would:
If you have any questions about the Loan Repayment Assistance Program, please reach out to Roger Spinney (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like an application for the program again reach out to Roger Spinney. The deadline to receive applications for the year 2021 grants is May 30, 2021. Decisions will be made on grants no later than June 15, 2021.
While the board has already allocated funds in assisting this program, they are working towards trying to fund this program with donations in order to continue this program. For those who have already paid off their education debt and would like to help other pastors, please go to our web site: https://www.northernbaptisteducationsociety.com.
