Women in Ministry Leadership (WIML) Alabaster House Legacy Scholarship recipients were announced on Aug. 1, 2012. $9,500 in total was awarded to six outstanding female leaders on the basis of church and community service, their call to ministry, character, financial need and future educational plans.

Marion Ingegneri, national field WIML representative, says: “Empowering and equipping emerging female leaders in the Foursquare family is a partnership that must be engaged on every level. While pastors, coaches and mentors on the field walk daily with these young leaders, it is my joy as national field representative for Women in Ministry Leadership to announce our partnership with the field through WIML scholarships for 2012.

“By providing $9,500 in scholarships for emerging leaders in three arenas of ministry education,” Marion continues, “we hope to see continued release of emerging female leaders in Foursquare. This partnership focuses on emerging female leaders attending Life Pacific College, those participating in Foursquare Emerging Leader Networks, and young women receiving training through Ignite. I invite you to join me in rejoicing over the partnership we enjoy as a Foursquare family.”

One Emerging Leader Network scholarship at $500 was awarded to Erica Tafoya; one Ignite scholarship at $1,000 was awarded to Brehanna Ryssemus; and four $2,000 Foursquare Bible college scholarships were awarded, one to each of the following recipients: Jessica Fuller, Kaitlyn Fults, Christina Paz and Lindsey Schaub.

Foursquare General Supervisor Tammy Dunahoo affirms: “We are very excited about the opportunity to support the education and training of our Foursquare leaders! This scholarship fund was created by women who have gone before us and leave a legacy in the generations behind them.”
