Helping equip the next generation of Christian leaders

Who We Are

Why is the 222 Foundation Needed?

  • There is an increasing disparity between pastoral salaries and the cost of a seminary degree which often leads to long-term financial challenges and debt.
  • A seminary degree may not fully equip students for some of the common challenges of ministry leadership.
  • Relieving the financial strain of a theological education can enable Christian leaders to serve in their mission field more effectively. (Matthew 28:19-20)
  • Many students lose the joy of the Lord (Nehemiah 8:10) during seminary…training for ministry is reduced to academic achievement.

What We Do

How does the 222 Foundation partner with seminary students?

  • We provide significant financial assistance to alleviate financial strain and long-term debt.
  • We provide mentoring by experienced pastors and church leaders to help students grow in the joy of their faith.
  • We help fill in the gaps between a seminary education and the real-life challenges of full-time ministry.
  • We support students by partnering them with mentors who understand the difficulties of balancing school, work, and family.

The 222 Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity that was founded to invest in the
future Christian ministry leaders of the world in three key areas:

— Personal growth

We mentor student partners as they grow in their roles within their family and ministry.

— Academic growth

We desire to financially partner with students to relieve the debt burden coming out of Seminary. This will allow student partners to focus more on their ministries once Biblical training is completed.

— Spiritual growth

We provide periodic encouragement through the calendar year by assigning mentors and prayer partners to students to encourage their growth in personal spiritual development

(Bible study, reading and prayer life), evangelism, equipping others and growth in the Fruits of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23)
