Reformed Blacks of America (RBA) is pleased to announce the launch of the Reformed Theological Seminary African-American Student Recruitment Initiative. This initiative at Reformed Theological Seminary-Orlando (RTS) will provide significant scholarship funding for qualified Reformed African-Americans interested in pursuing a Masters of Divinity as a participant in the African American Imagination and Theology Project. Through prayer and discussion, RTS-Orlando has expressed not only a desire, but also a definite commitment of necessary funds in order to secure such an opportunity for some scholarship applicants.
The foremost purpose of this initiative is to establish a relationship between RTS and Reformed Black churches through the recruitment and education of the students of those congregations. But the initiative is focused also on locating any qualified Reformed African-Americans interested in obtained a Masters of Divinity at a reformed institution.
RBA is currently contacting interested individuals and churches and will soon engage a limited number of churches across the country through travel to respective cities and personal visitation.
