Carroll has a heart for missions. “We equip missional leaders” is not just a slogan. Our mission exposes our heart for all church leaders who live and serve in multiple locales. Our Kindred Scholar Matching Fund program is designed to connect resourced students and their communities of faith with under-resourced students and their communities of faith for the purpose of sharing both learning and resources to complete the goal of a degree.

A Kindred Scholar is a student who connects with another student in his or her degree program but who lives and serves in a different context. The Kindred Scholars share learning experiences through courses they take together or through face-to-face interaction. The faith communities of the scholars–churches or small groups or ministries–become acquainted with their respective students and begin to pray for and support the needs of each other. Carroll will be glad to make the connection between students and churches to encourage fellowship and support.

Gifts to the Kindred Scholars Matching Fund will provide scholarships and materials for under-resourced students here and around the world.
