MB Foundation Announces New Leadership Generation Fund

MBF 1604 LGF LogoMB Foundation announces that beginning in 2017, $50,000 is available per year to encourage leadership development. Leadership Generation Fund will be granting annual scholarships ranging from several hundred dollars to $3,000 to encourage leadership development through the local church, FPU, FPU Biblical Seminary, MB Mission and Tabor College. Other opportunities will be considered on a case by case basis.

The goal of Leadership Generation Fund (LeadGen) is to serve as a catalyst to call out leaders, provide funding for leadership development, and become a key component to providing more young people trained and ready for Mennonite Brethren pastoral ministry. "We aren't interested in starting a leadership program, but want to provide funding to encourage utilization of existing MB academic institutions and leadership training programs," says Jon C. Wiebe, President and CEO of MB Foundation.

LeadGen will offer three progressively increasing scholarship levels. Each scholarship level will require increasing application requirements. LeadGen is designed to provide scholarships to young adults from high school to graduate students exploring ministry leadership opportunities in our Mennonite Brethren family.

An awards Committee has been formed to vet the applications and determine award levels. The Committee consists of Marci Bertalotto (Fresno CA), Wendell Loewen (Hillsboro KS), Don Morris (Edmond OK), Brian Wiebe (Fresno CA) and Jon Wiebe (Hillsboro KS).
