Preaching Ambassadors

Olivet’s Preaching Ambassador Program connects students preparing for ministry with the churches to which they are called to serve.

Both students and congregations reap immeasurable rewards as they establish these important connections. Students gain valuable ministry experience by preparing and delivering sermons for local churches. Congregations hear the preaching of God’s Word from the next generation of Church leaders, and meet the ONU students who benefit from their prayers and financial support.

Help support the ministry of Olivet's student Preaching Ambassadors by making a donation today.

Help to Fund a Preaching Ambassador's Education

We all know quality higher education is expensive. There is a way to help ministry majors who are facing this challenge. Funding of Preaching Ambassadors exists to provide additional scholarship assistance to Olivet students preparing for Christian ministry so that their debt load upon graduation may be much lighter. Your donation will directly influence the life and future ministry of an Olivet student — a student like the many who are connecting with churches all across the Midwest through the preaching ministry.
