The Overseer Roy E. West Promise Scholarships are raised through two Sunday worship services and donations during the first Sunday of December. The combination of the two services is entitled “Overseer’s Sunday.” The theme of Overseer’s Sunday is “Praise, Preaching and Promise.” The promise portion of Overseer’s Sunday is the endowing of the Overseer Roy E. West Promise Scholarships. The intent is to assist in making the promise of area youth who are active in church a reality.
To correlate the emphasis on active church participation of applicants, the scholarships will be awarded at a youth explosion on Good Friday, which is entitled “God’s Friday.”
Christ Lifters Community of Faith in conjunction with the Overseer Roy E. West Promise Scholarship Advisory Board will award as many scholarships as the year’s endowment will fund. The scholarships are for first-year students who have been accepted to and enrolled in an accredited 4-year university or college. These scholarships are awarded on the basis of activity in the church and academic merit, not financial need.
Each Overseer Roy E. West Promise Scholarship is for $1,000. The scholarship is awarded for one year only is not renewable. Overseer Roy E. West Promise Scholarships will be made payable directly to the registrar of the university on behalf of the student.
