Financial Planning | Knox Theological Seminary

THE CHURCH PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM

This is a scholarship program whereby the Seminary joins together with the local church to support students and their financial and ministerial needs. The Seminary will match up to one-third of the cost of tuition provided by the church. In other words, if the church contributes one-third and the student contributes one-third then the Seminary will contribute the final one-third of the tuition costs. Arrangements must be made through the Business Office. This partnership helps keep the Seminary linked to church ministries.

CHURCH SUPPORT

Many students find significant support from their home churches, through organized funds, or from individuals within the church. Students may want to speak with their pastor regarding assistance with education expenses, or talk to their missions pastor about obtaining individual support as a missionary. (See the Church Partnership Program on page 14 for details.)
