Total received as of May 24, 2018:

Bethlehem College & Seminary is giving glory to God at the news of two generous contributors who have offered to match up to $300,000 of gifts to The Serious Joy Scholarship between now and June 30, 2018. The name of this five-month effort will be “On The Double,” highlighting both the opportunity and the urgency. This means your gift of $100 becomes $200, $1,000 becomes $2,000, and a gift of $5,000 becomes a full scholarship, if received before school year’s end. To God be the glory!

Every resident student receives a Serious Joy Scholarship.

God works in the hearts of individual men and women to provide two-thirds of Bethlehem College & Seminary students’ full tuition cost such that they can:

  1. Receive a high-value education at an unusually affordable cost;
  2. Launch immediately into ministry without student loan debt;
  3. Be affordable as staff to churches and ministries that need them.

How The Serious Joy Scholarship Works

Full Annual Tuition$16,000
Serious Joy Scholarship–$10,000

Bethlehem College & Seminary receives no funds at all from the U.S. Department of Education, Federal Pell Grants, Student Loan Programs, IRS Code 26 §529 College Savings Plans, State of Minnesota, denominational support, or Desiring God Ministries. Bethlehem Baptist Church provides very generous services in-kind, but only a nominal amount of direct cash support.
