The Church of the Nazarene's office of Stewardship Development announced the 2017-2018 winners of the Stewardship Sermon Scholarship. The award is given to those students whose sermons are judged most effective in exploring biblical stewardship in the contemporary context of the local Nazarene church.
This year, two winners were chosen for submitting excellent stewardship sermons: Janae Meyer, attending Nazarene Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri, and Nicholas Walker, attending Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. Each will receive a $1,000 scholarship toward their continued pastoral development.
This year’s scripture assignment was Philippians 4:10-20. Applicants for the scholarship were challenged to explore a Wesleyan-Holiness perspective on tithing and sacrificial giving while addressing money as it relates to funding the mission of the Church of the Nazarene, “To make Christlike disciples in the nations.”
The sermons submitted by Meyer and Walker offered insightful, challenging calls to biblical stewardship. Stewardship Ministries would like to congratulate both winners on their excellent work. Their sermons are available as a free resource download on the Stewardship website.
