Partnering with APTS
Investing in students
No Servant Denied!
No servant of God will be denied graduate Biblical studies because of money. A noble vision of a noble seminary expressed. Yet a dozen pastors and students are applying from 3rd world, underdeveloped countries where their salaries range from $100 a month and who have no sponsors. Rejection letters are being prepared.
APTS is doing its part to fulfill the vision. Up to 90% of APTS students receive financial assistance of one form or another. Already, there is a tremendous return on investment. There are now over 1,000 APTS alumni serving the cause of the Gospel all over the world. Many of them are serving as key leaders of national churches in the Asia Pacific region.
Tuition/fees/board/room for 12 months costs about $5000 per student. In fact, just 24 persons pledging only $200/month each could provide almost 100% scholarship for a batch of 12 students. There are a variety of meaningful ways you can participate with APTS in making sure that, “No servant of God will be denied graduate Biblical studies because of money.”
- MEMORIAL ENDOWMENTS, a meaningful way to remember
- RECIPROCAL WILLS, including forms for a Power of Attorney and Living Wills
- STEWARDSHIP LIVING REVOCABLE TRUSTS, to guarantee professional management of your assets while you live and avoid probate delay in estate distributions after death
- ANNUITIES to guarantee a fixed income for life without worrying about the economy or stock market fluctuations
- CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS, a great way to retain a fixed life income without paying high Capital Gains taxes
Advancement through expansion!
The Board has approved the construction of the seminary Academic Research Center to meet the needs for expanded library services, additional classrooms, a student and faculty center, faculty offices, and computer and technical services. This project is slated to begin by 2007 with project completion in 2009. This is vital to maintaining the APTS library as one of the finest evangelical, theological libraries in Asia.
If you would like to participate in any of these projects, please contact the seminary.
