Recognized Generosity

The generosity of our donors to WJU is something to be valued and can’t be overlooked. Because of our beloved donors, students are more easily able to pursue a quality education and follow the calling of the most high God, which I am graciously a part of. Thank you to our faithful donors of WJU.

Challenged to Serve and Trust

Through my four years at WJU, I have been challenged in so many ways to serve and trust Christ. Without the incredible financial support through scholarships, I would not be here today. I would not have experienced the growth, challenges, joys, and friendships from this special Jessup community. Thank you.

Conformed to Christ's Image

Generosity is the natural outcome of God’s transforming work in individuals when they are conformed to the image of Christ and become as Christ is generous.

Impacting Jessup Students

Thank you for your contribution! Your gift towards student scholarships greatly impacts Jessup students.

Our World is Desperate for Christ-glorifying Leaders
