Ministry has been at the heart of MACU since it began.
As believers, we know ministry is not limited to the church. It is greater than just an occupation and more than just a degree program. It is a part of us eternally, something that we live and breathe as we follow Him through times both joyous and troublesome.
And perhaps most importantly, it is our duty to use our ministry to guide others, bringing the Light of Christ into their lives and making disciples out of them also. In Matthew 4:19, Jesus tells us to follow Him and that He will send us out to fish for people. At MACU, we are making fishermen out of our students!
Just this summer, a handful of our young Evangels served the Kingdom through internships across the country. Through these summer internships, students had the opportunity to not only serve as disciples of Christ, but to make disciples out of the lives around them. You well know this is the vision of Mid-America Christian University: to “Prepare People to do Greater Things for God and His Kingdom.”
We are accomplishing great things at MACU — but as you know, the cost of higher education is a daunting one, and up to 90% of our students would not be here without the generosity of our donors and the scholarships to which they contribute.
Would you consider giving to these scholarships through our Evangel Fund? This general scholarship fund goes to help students who are preparing to go out into the world and make disciples out of the people around them.
If you are able to give a gift of $100 or more, we would like to send you a very special gift. As you may have heard, MACU's own Dr. Cliff Sanders' newest book, The Optimism of Grace, is being used by churches and other church organizations, receiving outstanding reviews. For your gift of $100 or more, I would like to send you a set of the writings of Dr. Sanders. That includes not only his new book, but his 2008 publication, Making Sense of Spirituality.
God bless you, and thank you, for standing with MACU and our students. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our family and friends like you!
The Evangel Fund ensures...
Since our first concern is the student, we want to make education as affordable as possible. Without the Evangel Fund, each student's tuition would increase significantly.
We seek to provide facilities, faculty and equipment of the highest quality for our students.
The Evangel Fund makes possible advancement in such areas as:
General Student Scholarships
Student Development Programs

Sept. 25 - Oct. 6 • 6 to 8 p.m. CST
When our students call each year and ask you to participate, please make a pledge. Many corporations and foundations look at the percentage of Alumni supporting the school as they consider their gift to you, so it's not the amount you give that matters, but your participation.
Non-Cash Charitable Donations
If you are considering some other kind of gift (appreciated stock, estate, gift-in-kind, etc.) just call us! We can help you with setting up those options as well. Checks should be made payable to the MACU Evangel Fund. MACU also accepts Mastercard, Visa, Discover and AMEX.
