HENDERSON, Tenn. — Freed-Hardeman University has a new church match scholarship program for students whose home congregations fund a scholarship program.
The university will match church grants up to $2,500 per student for a maximum of $21,500 in institutional aid annually, admissions director Joe Askew said. New freshmen and transfer students are eligible.
“This program gave me the additional funds I needed to attend FHU,” said Brooke Simpson, a member of the Lehman Avenue Church of Christ in Bowling Green, Ky.
SEARCY, Ark. — Harding’s professional counseling program has opened the Compassion Clinic.
The new clinic provides low-cost individual counseling, child play therapy, group counseling and couples counseling to residents of Searcy, White County and surrounding areas.
“It’s definitely a mission, and you have to have a heart for it,” Jenene Alexander, the counseling program’s director, said of the clinic, which affords students real-world experience. “I have a heart for the children in this community, and I have worked with veterans for several years. It’s really a great thing to have this clinic here at Harding.”
YORK, Neb. — Study agribusiness in a Christian college setting?
That will be a possibility for York College students with the college’s addition of a four-year degree in that area starting this spring.
“So much of the area surrounding our campus is agriculture,” said Stacie Turnbull, the assistant professor leading the program. “The need for many businesses in our area is employees with ag experience and a four-year degree.”

WORLD BIBLE INSTITUTE
McDONOUGH, Ga. — World Bible Institute has begun offering a master’s degree in biblical studies.
Because the institute wishes to train kingdom workers for the modern world, the graduate program will focus on practical ministry.
“One of the best qualities of our degree program that sets it apart from others is that the student learns from hands-on projects relative to the field of study as opposed to just writing papers,” said David Hamrick, the institute’s president.
