Jarvis Christian College receives large endowment

An anonomous individual has donated $250,000 to Jarvis Christian College to be used as a permanent scholarship at the Historically Black College.

Northway Christian Church of Dallas presented the money to the college on behalf of one of their members.

"An anonymous member of our congregation who believes in the mission of Jarvis Christian College heard the calling to support [them] in a very tangible way," said Senior Minister, Dr. Douglas Skinner. "The desire is to provide a permanent endowment for a Northway Scholar at Jarvis Christian College every year in perpetuity."

Northway has supported the college for many years. For the past three summers, church mambers have traveled to Jarvis to work on mission projects where they restore and renovate the campus.
