As we strive to be a “healthy” church, where we invest in our youth, both spiritually and academically, Miracle Baptist Church has created the Debutante Scholarship Program. The Debutante Program is for the young ladies of Miracle Baptist Church, who are juniors and seniors in high school, to stimulate them to grow spiritually, to encourage the pursuit of higher education, achieving academic excellence, to enrich personal development and increase community involvement.
Further, it is our goal to utilize the Debutante Mentoring program to provide support for the young ladies that educate and motivate them during the debutante season. This program aims to plant seeds of social skills, nourished with etiquette and self-respect, in order to build our young ladies of today into confident, empowered women of tomorrow.
Each young lady who commits to and participates in the program will receive a scholarship toward their higher education, no matter how much money they raise individually.
The specific objectives of the program are to:
Prepare for Life
Provide Service to Others
Ephesians 4:11-16: “And he himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, t the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and from and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness by which they lie in wait to deceive, but speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ –from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which very part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
