We are currently accepting applications for the 2017 Steve Risner Memorial Scholarship. It is awarded to an active member of the Greater Dayton Association of Baptists who is preparing for full-time church or missionary service. This scholarship is awarded annually to a qualified candidate in the Greater Dayton Association of Baptists. The fund was established in memory of Steve Risner, an active and faithful member of our church and youth group, who was tragically killed in August 1978 while working at a service station in Xenia, Ohio.
The 2016 scholarship recipient was Mr. Kevin Singerman, a student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and the Minister of Students at Fairborn First Baptist Church. Recent recipients of the scholarship include members of First Baptist Church of Beavercreek, First Baptist Church of Kettering, First Baptist Church of Farmersville, and North Dayton Baptist Church.
Applications for this scholarship must be received by Wednesday, February 1, 2017. A copy of the application form, criteria, and financial need worksheet accompany this letter and may be reproduced or are located on our church’s Web site at www.fbcfairborn.org. Thank you for making this scholarship opportunity available to your membership. If you have any questions, please contact our church office.
In His Service,
