BJU Together

Support scholarships for students and help BJU continue our strong foundation of academic excellence. 

$4,043,720 Received of $4,500,000

BJU Seminary

Ministry education is on the move at BJU Seminary with the 500 x 5 x 5 strategic initiative—putting 500 pastors on the path to the pulpit in the next 5 years, and every 5 after that—and the 5P Plan to achieve it.

We are more committed than ever to humbly serving the church in every way we can—but in particular by equipping Word-Proclaiming, Gospel-Advancing preachers to help fill a nationwide shortage of pastors.

In order to reach the 500 x 5 x 5 vision, we’ve set the goal of raising 1 million dollars per year for scholarships and innovations that will make next-level training more accessible and affordable for the next generation of servant leaders. Our initial goal is $150,000.

$192,935 Received of $150,000
"There are now more full-time senior pastors who are over the age 65 than under the age of 40. It is urgent that denominations, networks and independent churches determine how to best motivate, mobilize, resource and deploy more younger pastors." - David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group

Patron of the Arts is a new giving program that underwrites these essential fine arts and performing arts programs to provide our students with the cultural experiences that you and I have come to appreciate.

Timothy / WORLD Fund

The Timothy Fund specifically provides for ministry students who desire to return to their country, plant churches, and spread the Gospel.
