Mission Trip Scholarships
Dear PBA Churches,
As you all know, the summer is when the majority of short term mission trips are planned and executed. The PBA Missions Team will financially assist PBA church members, who go on short term mission trips with scholarships of up to $150 per team member within the United States, and up to $300 per team member on the international mission field. The Missions Team wants to grant as many scholarships as possible, while at the same time granting them equally among our associational churches.
Therefore, the Missions Team has implemented the following practice for awarding these funds. Initially, there will be no more than seven mission scholarship requests submitted per church. If there are needs beyond this, once the seven applications are received from a particular church, additional applicants from that church will be placed on a waiting list for one month. This will enable team members from other PBA churches the opportunity to apply for scholarships. This way no single church is granted all the scholarships early in the year. The PBA Missions Team will constantly assess and keep the churches informed when and if more applicants from their churches are eligible to receive more scholarships.
We encourage you to begin your mission trip planning now and submit applications. If you know someone who would like to apply for a scholarship, you can encourage them to go to the Potomac Baptist Association web site, www.potomacbaptist.net, fill out and submit the application form.
The PBA Missions Team exists to help facilitate the local churches of our association to accomplish the Great Commission and this is just one way of helping.
