In order to empower the people of Albany Presbytery to experience and contribute to the mission of the whole church, build cross-cultural relationships, and foster deeper understanding of how the gospel is lived out in faith communities, both here and around the world, Presbytery has established a Mission Trip Scholarship Fund. This fund may be accessed by youth and adults via Mission Trip Scholarship Application forms available on-line.
The Mission Trip Review Team, appointed by Presbytery Council (and coordinating with the Stewardship and Mission Interpretation Committee) reviews all Mission Trip Scholarship Applications submitted to Presbytery. It assures that each Application meets all of the requirements for a scholarship and determines (within guidelines) the amount of each scholarship.
The Team (with one member appointed from the Stewardship and Mission Interpretation Committee) is currently comprised of Barbara Cervenka, Linda Martin and Peter McKinney.
Scholarship Applications should be submitted to the Presbytery office at least eight weeks prior to the scheduled mission trip.
