Why We Give
Deciding years ago to give annually to the Stegall Seminary Foundation was one of the best decisions my wife, Susu, and I ever made and one we have never regretted.
We love the fact that almost every penny we give goes DIRECTLY to seminary students who now in so many cases are being forced to accept a vow of poverty as one of the costs of their decision to serve God. Most of them had to quit their regular jobs and uproot their families and in case after case, it is as big a sacrifice for their families as for the seminarian.
Over the years, we have gotten so many heartfelt thank-you notes from young seminarians who didn’t know how they were going to financially make it through, but still trusted that God would supply their needs. How can any of us look away from this? A gift now to these worthy seminarians will make it possible for them to spend their future sharing the Good News with others. I can’t think of a better investment.
Of all the ways you can give to the Stegall Foundation, one of the easiest ways is through a planned gift. SuSu and I did this and nothing could have been easier or nearly as gratifying. We get to collect and use the income on our gift as long as we are living and we are comforted knowing the Stegall Foundation will be taken care of long after we are gone. Please contact the Foundation to find out just how easy it is to be a partner in ministry! – Temple Millsap
