A Christian Service Organization


“I am grateful for your generous support of students like myself who have heard and accepted God’s call to pursue pastoral ministry. This is certainly a joyous but daunting journey that, I assume, most of us had not been planning on until God was finally able to reach out and grap our attention in one way or another. The fact that there are people like you who enthusiastically support the church’s need for educated leaders, whose learning is only surpassed by their love and passion for the resurrected Christ is a comfort and inspiration.” Jared W.

“Words are somehow inadequate this morning as I write this note to express my thanks for the continuing support of The King’s Daughters and Sons. My wife and I regularly give thanks for having that which we need. Your scholarship of $1,000 for the new (and final!) seminary year is a major blessing. Thanks to God for using your international community of disciples to support students In His Name.” Alan L.
