STATEMENT: The mission of the Scholarship Committee is
to support, promote and encourage the educational pursuits and goals
of individuals in our church and community with scholarships and
Providence Baptist Church Scholarship Committee's responsibility
is to administer and award scholarships to applicants who meet the
eligibility requirements for the scholarships that Providence Baptist
Church offers. In the past scholarship awards were made from two
sources: the Edna Over Campbell (EOC) Scholarship
Fund which was established in 1986, and the Juanita
Jones Williams (JJW) Scholarship Fund which was established
in 1998. The founders of both of these scholarship funds had life-long
careers as educators and worked to promote academic excellence for
the youth of our church. The Edna OVer Campbell
and the Juanita Jones Williams Scholarships
are funded primarily from the accrued interest from their respective
investment accounts as well as from contributions that are directed
to each fund.
2006, a new initiative from our co-pastors, Reverends Douglas E.
Summers and Marcus G. Wood was implemented to provide a third source
of education funding. This new initiative, the Providence
Baptist Church Education Grant (PBCEG), awards financial assistance
to members of the church and the community. Funding for the PBCEG
will be in the church budget and from contributions.
