A Clear Mission, An Inspiring Example, And Generous Donations.
In a window of giving lasting exactly 30 days, Austin Grad received 41 gifts totaling $162,925 for the Roy Osborne Memorial Fund for Biblical Literacy.
A long-time philanthropist began this fund at Austin Grad with three provisions:
Donations would be used to pay salaries and benefits of the Austin Grad faculty members, who promote stronger biblical literacy in the church and in society.
Donations would serve to lift up one of the examples of a Christian servant, Roy Osborne, who had invested his life in successfully promoting stronger biblical literacy.
A window of giving would be brief, just a 30-day period, and a combined total of $100,000 would be the goal, with the philanthropist providing $50,000 of the total.
By the 30th day, cash gifts totaled $162,975, more than 62% better than projected.
We are grateful & rejoicing!
To the many who helped make this possible, we extend our heartfelt appreciation.
If you would like to be an active participant in promoting biblical literacy, there are several avenues in which you can play an important role:
Make a gift that will promote stronger biblical literacy in the church and in society.
Take accredited graduate or undergraduate courses, full-time or part-time, to strengthen your own biblical literacy skills.
Complete a graduate or undergraduate Specialization program, each involving 3 or 4 courses, such as a Specialization in Old Testament, New Testament, Ministry, or a Biblical Language.
Schedule an information event so members of your congregation can learn about completing an accredited Master of Arts degree in Christian Ministry or an accredited Bachelor of Arts degree in Christian Studies.
