ENDOWMENT GRANTS

In 2003, Epworth had a vision to make disciples through Christ-centered world missions and health ministries, student scholarships, and general ministries of the church. From that vision, Epworth’s Endowment Fund was born.

Current endowments are:

  • The Louise Fetzer General Endowment for local missions outside of Epworth

  • The Jim Bleadingheiser Trustee Building Maintenance Endowment for the Board of Trustees to use in the maintenance and upkeep of Epworth
