Steve Risner Scholarship

We are currently accepting applications for the 2021 Steve Risner Memorial Scholarship. It is awarded to an active member of the Greater Dayton Association of Baptists who is preparing for full-time church or missionary service. This scholarship is awarded annually to a qualified candidate in the Greater Dayton Association of Baptists. The fund was established in memory of Steve Risner, an active and faithful member of our church and youth group, who was tragically killed in August 1978 while working at a service station in Xenia, Ohio.

The 2020 scholarship recipient was Mr. Grant Henry, a student at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and a member of First Baptist Church of Waynesville. Recent recipients of the scholarship include members of Springboro Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Kettering, First Baptist Church of Farmersville, and North Dayton Baptist Church.
