Tuition Assistance Policy

College Heights Christian Church is devoted to the development of college-aged individuals’ spiritual growth, academic equipping, and the maturation of their gifts and passions to be used in and through the local church. Because of this there is tuition assistance available to those who meet specific criteria.

While ministry is a choice that someone makes regardless of their career or profession, the priority of this assistance is to go towards those who are preparing to go into full-time vocational ministry. See the following priorities to understand how this assistance will be prioritized. Small Grants may also be given to those who fit the qualifications and who are in leadership positions at College Heights, such as church interns.
