Past Campaigns

Witness of Hope

Largest Scholarship Campaign To DateĀ 

In May of 2019, more than 100 scholarships were offered as part of our “Witness of Hope” campaign. These scholarships allowed for full participation in our virtual 2-week Witness event when the country was experiencing lockdown during the global pandemic. In Word and Witness members provided community, development, prayer, and hope during a time of crisis.
