TBS is in the midst of an amazing season of abundant, fast-moving ministry that includes enrolling the highest number of graduate students ever this spring semester, the hiring of Dr. Paul Nyquist as Dean of Graduate Programs, four new Master of Arts programs, excellent classes, accreditation pending, and worldwide publicity and influence through publications and productions including and featuring TBS leaders.
Yet, adequate funding remains a primary challenge. Many non-profit organizations have seen donations decline this year, possibly due to: 1) last year’s downward trend of the stock market and global economic concerns; 2) the increase in U.S. federal income tax standard deduction thresholds reducing the financial benefit of making charitable donations; 3) and, in the Houston area, the ongoing effects of recovering from Hurricane Harvey.
The TBS fiscal year runs June 1 through May 31. TBS received one very large donation from an anonymous donor this past summer, about $70,000 from our recent Celebration Banquet so far, and some other monthly and special gifts, but our much-lower-than-average donation income rate this fiscal year means that we still need additional charitable donations by May 31, 2019 to meet our budgeted finances for 2018-19.
Current Status (amount needed by May 31, 2019):
- Mar 1: $330,000
- Apr 1: $265,000
- Apr 8: $238,000
- Apr 26: $165,000
- May 6: $127,000
- May 10: $110,000

Yes, you can request gifts for consideration toward specific or general student scholarships, or any of the scholarship funds below. Donation amounts awarded to individual students are designated by the TBS Scholarship Committee, which reviews applications and makes decisions based on need, merit, and other factors.
- Student Scholarships - Funds given toward our general scholarship fund may be utilized to help with student tuition, fees, and other educationally-related institutional expenses. Donors may also give to this fund in memory or honor of someone. For example, some have given in honor of Paul A. Helbig (The Bible Seminary co-founder, and former Bible Institute Dean, Faculty, and Chaplain) and Drs. Phil and Linda Woodfield Pattillo (their exemplary kingdom endeavors include Linda’s innovative career as a university and seminary professor, an Itinerate Missionary for Natan Ministries worldwide for more than 30 years, and biblical languages and Holy Land research, studies, and teaching).
- Holy Land Tour Scholarships - Helps with costs for traveling to the Holy Land as part of the TBS degree programs. Student Technology Scholarships - Helps with student technology resources including software subscriptions, upgrades, resources, and training.
