Deacon Program Scholarships

Deacon Program Scholarships

Over the past several years CALM has donated a number of $100 scholarships to help defray the expenses of the courses.  The deacon program, which was begun out of a need for assistance for pastors and vacant churches, has produced 6 trained deacons and 4 more are taking the training at this time.
