Steven Kyle Kowalewski Memorial Scholarship

Steven Kyle KowalewskiThe Steven Kyle Kowalewski Memorial Scholarship was established in 2015 to honor the memory of a young man with a desire to know Jesus Christ and serve in the ministry. Steven had a servant’s heart and a gentle spirit. Steven was a gifted writer who was quick to listen and slow to speak. He used those qualities to encourage others. It is the hope of the Kowalewski family that this scholarship will help prepare those students with a calling to see lives changed through the good news of Jesus Christ.

“Well, it’s the little things that give my faith the encouragement it needs to tread onward. It would maintain itself regardless, but little stories of faith and hope help nonetheless. Thank you for all those that are faithful and true. We endure this battle together.” – Steven Kyle, June 2, 2015.
