Dear WFR/Sunset Alumnus,
God has truly been blessing Sunset International Bible Institute. We have been blessed with the finest Bible faculty, well qualified students and generous donors who share our values and vision. You, our alumni, (yes WFR is included) are among our greatest blessings, as you preach, teach, minister and make disciples. We want to inform you first, before any public announcement, about a very special blessing and opportunity made possible by a substantial donation, which has enabled us to establish the SIBI PREACHER TRAINING FUND.
Based on the assets in the fund, Sunset will now be able to offer the Victor Ellison Academic Scholarship to several students to cover the cost of books and fees. Some may qualify to receive the Gerald Paden Missions Scholarship to cover the costs of the annual mission trip to Mexico City. A few could receive the Truman Scott Dean’s Scholarship to cover cost of living and school expenses from $250 to $1,000 per month. One qualified student each year will be offered the Cline R. Paden Scholarship which could provide full support for a typical preacher student while in classes at Sunset. We are looking for the best candidates to apply for and qualify for these scholarships, and you are our greatest resource in finding and recommending quality students who will prepare for Kingdom ministry.
We pray for our alumni in chapel each Monday, and you are certainly included in those prayers. We are continually reminded of how important our students and alumni are to us. We are hoping that you will join us in finding a new generation of preachers, teachers, missionaries and ministers to be engaged in the greatest work in all the world. Our special scholarship fund is even able to bless you with a “thank you” gift as you “shoulder tap” and bless potential students. When you submit names and contact information about potential students for the school of preaching, we will send you a link for a free download of a book from Sunset’s online digital library or its hard copy equivalent from Sunset Bookstore. If the future preacher you recommend goes through the application process, is accepted as a student in the residential school and completes the first term, our scholarship fund will bless you with a gift of $500. Remember, the student you send us may qualify for some very special scholarships.
We are praying for you as an alumnus and appreciate the prayers you offer for us here at Sunset. We thank you in advance for helping us find the “best of the best,” to join you and us in expanding the Kingdom and ministering for Christ.
Greatest Blessing to You,
