Each applying student prepared an essay to answer the question, “How do I put feet to my Christian service and how will a Christian Higher Education help accomplish my goals?” Edwards said, “It is easy to be a “model Christian” at church but it is hard to be one every day of the week. We have to do our best as Christians and followers of Christ, to spread God’s word and be living examples of him.”

MBF President, Dr. Neil Franks remarked, “We believe in Christian higher education, and we want to make it slightly more affordable to at least a few worthy Missouri Baptist students. We are very happy for Mr. Edwards, and are delighted we can encourage him in his journey."

More than 50 students applied for just thirteen scholarships being offered by the MBF this year. The MBF board of trustees has a desire to help students with an interest in a Christian higher education knowing that it can make an eternal difference in advancing the Gospel.
