Our Mission

The Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation helps missionary kids, whose parents have made personal and financial sacrifices to serve the Lord all over the world, afford a quality Christian college education. 

Our Vision

The Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation hopes that children of missionary families will use their Christian college education to make a further substantial impact on the world, and that throughout their lifetimes, will pass the blessing on to others in need.

The Lord blessed me and enabled me to earn far more money than I needed. My family was well provided for, so to whom do I give the surplus? Missionary Kids are special and can use it to perhaps change the world we live in so I started the Christian Missionary Scholarship Foundation. I fully expect that one of my MKs will graduate from a Christian college and become the head of state in his own country some day.”
