GPLTC Mission Scholarships  

* all GPLTC Mission Scholarships will be submitted online.   

Message from the Judges:

We are excited that you have chosen to serve the Lord and his people through mission work! We look forward to seeing your heart for God, passion behind your desire to serve, and detailed plans for your service through this application. It is our hope that you take great responsibility and pride in your application. We value the opportunity to support you as you go out to serve in a specific role spreading God's love throughout your community and the world.

Fundraising may seem like a non-important part of your mission trip. Through the support raising process, you have the opportunity to declare what you believe and invite people into your mission who might not be able to go, but they can still be a part of God’s work through you.

Henri Nouwen says, “Even a seemingly small act of generosity can grow into something far beyond what we could ever ask or imagine—the creation of a community of love in this world, and beyond this world, because wherever love grows, it is stronger than death.” (The Spirituality of Fund-raising by Henri J.M. Nouwen)

As a missionary, I share this to encourage you in your fundraising process. It may seem irrelevant, but every time you ask someone to support your mission, you are sharing God’s love even before you have arrived on the mission field. We are honored to be a part of that ministry and want to encourage you as you share with others what you believe and invite people into God’s love.

Thank you for loving the Lord, and thank you for putting that love into motion! 

 

Feb 19, 2019 Application deadline

*See Mission Scholarship in the LTC Manual for specific guidelines

 

Any current LTC participant 7th-12th grade and LTC Alumni (high school graduate and participant during at least one of the 2015-2018 LTC Conventions) may apply to receive funding for a mission trip. Applicants will be divided into 3 categories: 7-9 grade, 10-12 grade, Alumni. 

 

Financial award format has changed for the 2019 LTC Convention:

Participants are eligible to receive financial support for their mission trip made available by the generous contributions of our LTC community. The maximum available funding will be dependent upon the participant’s rating and the total estimated cost of their trip:

Gold: Up to $250 but not to exceed 50% of the total estimated cost of the trip.
Silver: Up to $200 but not to exceed 40% of the total estimated cost of the trip.
Bronze: Up to $150 but not to exceed 30% of the total estimated cost of the trip.

Each applicant will be required to complete the online LTC Mission Fund Application by clicking the appropriate catagory link above. Points will be deducted for grammar and spelling errors. Applications that appear to be copy and pasted will be disqualified. 

A team of judges, composed of LTC Alumni, who have served or are currently serving on the mission field, will evaluate the application and involvement at LTC (and for Alumni, their activities at local church). The judges will assign a point value and the LTC Board of Directors will make the final assignment of awards.

Applications must be submitted by February 19, 2019.  Awards will be announced at the LTC Convention in Rogers, AR.
