Randy Yarber Scholarship Fund
2019 Randy Yarber Youth Scholarship
The Randy Yarber Scholarship is awarded each year to one Great Commission-minded believer, who serves others “above and beyond,” in a way that brings glory to Jesus Christ through a short-term missions trip (9 months or less.) The $2,500 scholarship is for the applicant’s mission trip fee. If the trip fee is less than $2,500, the complete missions trip fee will be covered by the scholarship, however, the difference in funds will not be given.

Applications are only accepted between January 1 and March 15. If necessary, interviews with three finalists will be held between March 15 and 30. The scholarship will be awarded on April 15. To apply, complete the online applications and request your Pastor or Ministry Leader to complete the online recommendation form.
