There are some moments that readily inspire worship. Watching four of our high school seniors receive full-ride college scholarships was certainly one of them!
Whitney, Kimberly, Esther, and Johnny (pictured above) were 4 of 31 students in the Twin Cities to be awarded full-tuition, full-need college scholarships via the Act Six program for emerging, urban leaders. Whitney will be attending Bethel University in the fall, while Kimberly, Esther, and Johnny head to the University of Northwestern, St. Paul–for a total of $640,000 in scholarships.
Even more importantly, we praise God for the deeper evidences of grace in the lives of these students and their classmates. By God’s grace, they are becoming kingdom citizens who work for justice, economic opportunity, racial harmony, hope for the family, and joy in the community. Now that’s something to celebrate!
Stay tuned for more updates on our soon-to-be-graduates. In the meantime, join us in praising the Giver of these very good gifts.
