Continuing Education Fund

The Continuing Education Fund for Pastors/Staff and Church Leaders is a fund committed to give grants for pastors/staff and church leaders to continue their training for ministry while serving in Dakota Baptist Convention churches.   These grants are not intended to cover the entire cost of tuition.  The DBC anticipates that the recipient, their local church, or association might also help with tuition.
