Our mission is to promote the Kingdom of God through the approved ministries of Second Presbyterian Church by developing, investing, and disbursing financial resources for strategic ministries in Memphis, America and around the world.
The history of Second’s commitment to funding seminarians who are members of our church goes back at least to the early 1960s. When researching those old and sometimes yellowed records, one has to smile at the quite literal “carbon copies” of documents; the formality and length of hand written letters of correspondence; the odd shaped forms of promissory notes for student loans to be forgiven if engaged in full time Christian work; and most notably the price of seminary in those days.
Almost 60 years later support for seminarians remains at the heart of the mission of the Foundation. Learn more about how that support came to be, how it continues, and the immeasurable fruit that has come and is yet to come from this investment in spreading the gospel.
Praise the Lord that so many have been raised up out of Second Presbyterian Church for this deeply intensive mission.
