Ministry Scholars Omark Winner

In 2021, the Seminary decided to open up part of the Omark Preaching Competition specifically for undergraduate level students in the Ministry Scholars Program. These students are majoring in a variety of areas and are on their way to completing their undergraduate degree AND a Master of Arts in Ministry in 5 years.

Ministry Scholars are scored using the same parameters as the Seminary graduate level students, and follow the same deadlines. Along with three Seminary graduate level student winners, one Ministry Scholars student is chosen as the winner, who is awarded $500 from the Ministry Scholars Program.

To Ministry Scholars, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to grow in your public speaking and communication skills, as well as get feedback from local pastors and faculty who are trained and experienced in preaching.

If any Ministry Scholars have questions about the Omark Preaching Competition, they can email bryce-johnson@bethel.edu

Apply now to join the Ministry Scholars Program.
