Found throughout the biblical witness—from Hebraic law and the cries of the prophets to the Sermon on the Mount and Paul’s ecclesiastical exhortations—is a central call to pursue shalom, peace, and wholeness. To a people in exile, the prophet Jeremiah shared God’s encouragement to “seek the shalom of the city.” To crowds living in a land occupied by a militant empire, Jesus declared that peacemakers are “blessed” and would be called “children of God.”
In today’s world, there are clear areas of unrest, division, and strife. The scriptures call us to the good work of building bridges and finding peace socially, politically, and spiritually. It is with this in mind that we introduce the Shalom Scholarship, designed for students with a heart and vision for biblical peacemaking within their vocational calling.
All new students in the MDiv, MAT, MATM, or MAICS degree programs intending to enroll in Spring 2019 are eligible to apply for this competitive scholarship, which will cover one-third (33%) of tuition costs during the first four quarters of study.
