Scholarship Ministry – Co-op City Baptist Church

Church Building Fund

$2,690 of $0 raised


“The doctors said I probably wouldn’t live very long….”  

Our founding pastor, the late Rev. Julius Sasportas, would often share the story of his fragile start in life. But he defied the odds and lived for over 90 years.

Rev. Sasportas’ experience is a metaphor for the Co-op City Baptist Church.

We’ve had to scrape, sacrifice and fight for everything. Although we’ve been knocked down many times, by God’s grace, we have never been KNOCKED OUT.

Any day now, cranes will arrive on the site, and the “digging” will begin!

Our new church edifice will include a state-of-the-art facility to house a comprehensive youth education and recreational program.

But, we can do more things faster for our kids if we’re not in debt. Working in the red is why many large community-based projects shut down. And we will not fail these kids! We need to earn $100,000 in a year.

Kindly donate, and share this link through social media so others can join this effort.

It’s easy to say you want our kids to excel in math, reading, technology and science, but will you actively support such an outcome?

Even if you don’t know us, please do this **(seriously)** …

Pray over your credit card. Then make your donation as a love offering to God. He will bless you for being a blessing to children.  Thank you!

Favorite Bible Passage
“Blessed is the man who gains understanding, for he is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.” (Proverbs 3:13, NIV)

The Scholarship Ministry was established in The Co-op City Baptist Church in 1985.  Its mission is to assist the youth of our congregation in furthering their education by earning a degree at an accredited college or university of their choice, as a matriculating student.  The ministry grants a scholarship, to qualifying students, payable over a period of no more than four years.  While there are specific requirements each student must meet, the monies may be applied as the student wishes.  Also students, who are members of the church, may be given a gift by the ministry at any level of scholastic achievement.  Funds are raised by special events planned specifically for this purpose.
