Sola Deo Gloria! To God Be The Glory!
Mind. Heart. Body. Soul.
The school you’ve been praying for is here, and it has been for over 70 years!
Those of you in attendance at the school’s 34thAnnual Benefit Dinner in March were inspired and encouraged as you were reminded of the many things that make Mars Hill Bible School unique. You relived the dreams of those who knew the good the school could accomplish and sacrificed to bring it into existence. You felt a sense of pride as you were told of its far-reaching impact for good. You were reminded of the humble greatness of its teachers who made a positive impact on so many young lives. You laughed. You cried. And, in the end, you breathed a prayer of thanks to the God who made it all happen. In the past few months, a number of the school’s supporters have determined to help others carry on the legacy by beginning endowed scholarships to honor those special teachers by establishing scholarships that would allow students to enjoy the blessings of Mars Hill in future generations.
One of the teachers described during the presentation was Mrs. Lorene Hester, a beloved second grade teacher, who modeled a life of love and sacrifice for her students. Her daughter, Mrs. Nancy Hester Hoke, also a former teacher here, recently established an endowed scholarship in her mother’s honor to help students who otherwise would not be able to afford to enroll at Mars Hill the opportunity to do so.
Also, this past spring, former students, alumni and friends established the Kenny Barfield Preaching Scholarship to continue the school’s legacy of producing future ministers to serve in the Lord’s Kingdom.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to fund these scholarships and we are well on our way to reaching that goal. You can help by contributing toward the scholarship goal. As you were reminded in March, thousands of small donors made the difference for the school in the past. You can help continue that legacy. Perhaps some of you remember the difference someone who loved the school made in your life and you’ve been thinking about honoring their memory. Contact the school development office and we will help you begin the process. Help continue the dream for future generations!
