The Bishop Charles Wesley Jordan ScholarshipBishop Charles Wesley Jordan has been called “an empowerer of people; a tireless human-rights advocate; and a doer of the Word.” For decades, he led local churches, global initiatives, and various general boards of the United Methodist Church. After serving as resident bishop of the Iowa Area for eight years, Bishop Jordan retired from active episcopal assignment, and joined Claremont School of Theology as Bishop-in-Residence until May 2016. With his blessing, CST is establishing the Bishop Charles Wesley Jordan Scholarship. Bishop Jordan has been a leader among leaders, yet remained grounded in his deep passion for lifting up others. For 15 years at CST, he empowered future pastors and through them he will continue to shape our future churches. With your generous contribution, the Bishop Charles Wesley Jordan Scholarship will be awarded yearly to an African American student who intends to go into pastoral ministry.
The minimum amount needed to endow the scholarship is $50,000; our goal is $150,000.
Please prayerfully consider joining his family, colleagues, churches, and friends in honoring Bishop Jordan and empowering future generations of students who will continue his legacy of bold pastoral ministry.
