General Conference 2016 Scholarships

therefore_goThe Rio Texas MFSA and Rio Texas Reconciling Team are collaborating to raise funds to send Young Adults from our conference to General Conference 2016 in Portland, OR. It takes $1000-$1500 per scholarship to pay for airfare, lodging, and meals. We have already presented one scholarship and we are hoping to present at least one more.

Our first scholarship was presented to Jarell Wilson, a United Methodist candidate for ordination and a May graduate from Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Here is how you can help:

·       If you have air miles that you would like to donate, please contact Joy Butler at

·       If you would like to help with a check, please make the check to Rio Texas MFSA and give or mail it to Janice Curry, 1509 Mearns Meadow Blvd., Austin, TX 78758.

·       Or, you can use this “Donate” button to contribute directly to our Rio Texas Chapter of MFSA which will go to the scholarship fund.  This button uses PayPaltm to collect your donation via your major credit card.  (You do not need a PayPaltm account in order to donate – just click and follow the instructions.)

Thank you for helping young adults participate in General Conference 2016. If know of a young adult who would like to apply for a scholarship to GC 2016, please have them contact Janice Curry or Joy Butler
