September 15 is the deadline to file an application for an AG Next Generation Grant.
who graduated from an Assemblies of God college, university or seminary no
earlier than May 2007 and no later than June 2011, need assistance with
sizeable school debts in order to enter ministry more quickly or are currently
in a full-time ministry position, can apply now for a grant.
The Assemblies of God Trust and the Alliance for AG Higher Education, located at the Assemblies of God National Leadership and Resource Center in Springfield, Missouri, are working together to provide this crucial financial assistance for as many qualifying AG college alumni as possible.
AG Next Generation Fund Grants are disbursed in the form of monthly payments to school debt loan holders on behalf of the grant recipient. Grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis, vary in amount, and are only available to graduates who agree to provide at least five years of full-time service in ministry.
This is the third year the AGTrust has offered the grants. Last year, 21 grants were awarded.
"We are making the choice to do everything we can to make sure our Fellowship
is strong and healthy for future generations," says Dr. George O. Wood, Assemblies
of God general superintendent. "It is our choice. But it is their future."
The application for AG Next Generation Fund grants is posted online here. All applicants must submit their completed application forms no later than September 15, 2012.
