Over 44 years of ministry, Pastor Stephen Boardman served 5 churches in Indiana and Ohio. He often preached about how lives were more than just the date we were born and the date we passed- it is what is included in that dash between the dates. Pastor Steve made the most of his dash.

Born into a Christian home, it wasn’t until he was a Freshman at Marion College (now Indiana Wesleyan University) where Steve committed his life to Christ. He had planned to become a history teacher, but God led him into the ministry instead.

Steve was a committed Christ follower, godly Husband, and role model for his children, grandchildren, and each of his congregations.

Steve passed on November 8th, 2018 after battling pancreatic cancer, while bravely showing the world the hope he had in heaven.

The goal of this scholarship is to support first generation undergraduate students, in Ohio or Indiana, to attend a four year college or university.

To apply, please write a brief essay regarding your faith, how it’s impacted your high school experience, and how you plan to continue to grow your faith through your college experience.
