Arise Many of our local churches are constantly seeking to raise more money and attract younger families. ARISE is a process for churches to rediscover their mission and what God has called them to do. This opportunity will get your leaders and members thinking, talking and praying about the future of the church.

Pastor Education

Pastor Education Fund This scholarship is designed to finish covering the expenses of attending seminary for those who have been approved as a candidate for ordained ministry in The Oklahoma Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. Go to the Board of Ordained Ministry section of the Conference website to learn more about the candidacy process. There are Methodist education funds (MEF) available from the United Methodist Church as well as this scholarship once one becomes a candidate. The Foundation offers this scholarship as an investment that will hopefully return 30 to 40 years of service after seminary.
