CBF Virginia makes partnership gift to BSK

Baptist Seminary of Kentucky has received its first gift from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Virginia’s Theological Education Fund.


The $20,000 gift will be used to provide scholarships for Virginia students and strengthen BSK’s outreach in the commonwealth.


CBF Virginia chose BSK late last year as its partner school to provide theological education for Cooperative Baptists in Virginia who wish to study where they live and work.


Virginia students, like others who study at BSK through remote learning, can complete an accredited M.Div. degree by taking classes via BSK’s virtual classrooms. Certificate programs, which cater to both experienced ministers and lay leaders, are also available online.


BSK was selected from among a group of theological schools that submitted partnership proposals to CBF Virginia. It also chose Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond as a partner school.  Union, which recently established a Baptist House of Studies, serves Cooperative Baptists in Virginia who want a traditional on-campus seminary experience.


To fund its new efforts, CBF Virginia created the Theological Education Fund, which is primarily supported by gifts from CBF Virginia congregations.  Their generosity benefits both BSK and Union Seminary students.
