For many TCNN students and potential students funding their study is a big challenge. God doesn’t only gift and call into ministry people easily able to access the resources needed for training. In the light of needs of which we are well aware, TCNN has set up two funds to help, operated on its behalf by a Funds Committee:

1. The Boer Scholarship Fund. Named after Dr Harry Boer, the visionary and founding Principal of TCNN, this fund awards scholarships for particularly gifted students – those who have shown they have the potential for a career in theological education. Normally scholarships are awarded for post-graduate study; some beneficiaries are junior members of the college’s teaching staff.

2. The Needy Student Fund. This is a revolving loan fund designed to help students who find themselves in difficult situations. Most often this fund helps students clear tuition fees and accommodation costs, but loans may also be given for feeding and other pressing needs. It can make the difference between continuing and abandoning studies.

Both funds depend on donations from friends of TCNN, and we would be very grateful if you invest in God’s kingdom by supporting either fund or both. Receipts are issued for all donations, and accounts are monitored by the senior members of TCNN staff who oversee the funds.
