            CHICAGO (ELCA) – In its commitment to supporting seminary students preparing for ministry, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) – through the ELCA Fund for Leaders – awarded scholarships to students attending the eight seminaries of the ELCA for the 2015-16 academic year.

“The ELCA Fund for Leaders is the ongoing promise of this church that those called to lead the ELCA have the opportunity to follow that call – to learn and prepare at an ELCA seminary, to go wherever the call might take them and to enter their pastoral service without the burden of excessive debt – freed to serve with confidence, creativity and generosity,” said Christina Jackson-Skelton, executive director for ELCA Mission Advancement.
