We are excited to announce the opening of the Virginia Penker scholarship fund!
This fund will be used to help disadvantaged children participate in Urban Plunge trips around the nation. It will be given to families who can not otherwise afford for them to go.
The Urban Plunge is an incredible opportunity to serve God, bless ministries, and help youth discover their giftings, and dream about where God may be calling and using them in the future, and in their hometowns.
Scholarship donations can be any amount, but $65 will sponsor a child for one day, $130 will cover the cost of a weekend Plunge, and $250 will cover the cost of a week.
Virginia Penker was a beautiful example of love, mercy, and grace to everyone around her. Her home was a place of safety, where a hot meal was only one of many resources that she used to bless others. Virginia passed away at the age of 88 in December of 2014. The hope is that through this scholarship, her legacy of stewardship and hospitality would be passed on.
