Oval James invites applications for bursary

Friday June 3rd 2011

Oval James Insurance Brokers invite applications from the company’s client churches for its ‘Leaders of Tomorrow' Bursary, which is now into its 10th year.

The purpose behind the Bursary is to provide small grants to individuals or groups who plan to undertake training, research or study in Youth Ministry, Leadership and/or Development who will at the end of their training put back what they have learnt into their own congregation.

Oval James will this year be able to distribute more money than before courtesy of its Insurer partners Royal & Sun Alliance and Ecclesiastical.

The total amount of funds available is £5,000. Average grants issued since the Bursary began have been in the region of £200.

Examples include:-

  • 75% grants towards the cost of Youth Ministry and OCN accredited Youth Work Qualifications.
  • £150 for a team building event for new Leaders
  • £600 to a Church who organised a Youth Leadership Workshop with an outside organisation for
    their own Church and those within their district.

Bursary grants will not be allocated to ongoing annual subscriptions/training fees, building/capital projects, university fees or travel.

The closing date for applications is July 31 2011. It is anticipated that all grant monies will be issued by September 2011.

Application forms can be obtained by making contact with Roisin McClenaghan on 028 9024 1651 or email roisin.mcclenaghan@ovaljames.com.
