W.I.S.E. Scholars – Women in Seminary Education

Share

Kathi Nygaard WISEAt the 2003 Western North Dakota Synodical Women’s Organization Convention, the women of Western North Dakota voted to establish a fund to support those  women from Western North Dakota who are furthering their education  through seminary courses.  Throughout the year, the WND Synodical  Women’s Organization relies on gifts from our units, clusters, and individuals to replenish this WISE Fund which is then given away  in annual awards to eligible candidates.  This gives the women a concrete means of showing our women seminarians that they are not  only prayed for, but also can receive monetary support for their  seminary studies.  Since conception, thirty-two women have received  financial as well as prayer support, and $49,175 has been given as the WND Women of the ELCA seek to encourage our women in seminary study.  Women in Western  North Dakota are grateful for their sisters in Christ who are  pursuing their calling to serve God in this way, and our women  seminarians have expressed their thanks for the support they  receive.  We are one body in Christ, each one receiving special gifts  for the glory of God.
