The Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith (PCAFI) is committed to advancing God’s Kingdom for maximum impact. The purpose of the PCAFI Ministerial Excellence Center (MEC) is to support the wholistic flourishing of our pastors to equip them for personal and pastoral excellence as they advance the Kingdom. The MEC Scholarship Program will provide scholarships for pastors and pastor's children.

PK (Pastors’ Kids) Scholarships would provide need-based funding to the legal dependent children of pastors to attend accredited colleges and universities. This competitive scholarship program would offer $2,500 scholarships, renewable for up to four years with satisfactory academic progress.

Bishop D. Rayford Bell Pastor-Scholar Grants named after our fourth presiding bishop and the founder of D.R. Bell Apostolic Bible College (formerly Midwest Apostolic Bible College), would provide grants for pastors who pursue advanced courses of study from ATS-accredited seminaries and divinity schools. To be eligible, pastors would need to remain PCAFI-affiliated and financially active during the grant term. $2,500 in support would be made available per year up to a maximum of 4 years per pastor.
