Biblicus Mexico Students Visiting and Speaking in Services August 4-7

During the 11:00 AM Traditional and 11:02 AM Contemporary Services on Sunday, August 7, Biblicus Mexico Scholarship seminary students will be speaking briefly about their studies and the scholarships FPC helped provide.

Kathy Scruggs is moderator of the Mission South Champion Team of the Global Missions Committee. The Biblicus Mexico Program was founded in 2020 by this team, to strengthen the Presbyterian Church of Mexico (INPM ) and South Texas through prayer, networking, and scholarships. Seven students have been awarded scholarships. Each student has a mentor and a prayer partner.  Three students graduated from Presbyterian Seminaries in Mexico this summer. All scholarship recipients were invited to come to San Antonio this week, but only three were successful in obtaining the visa required for travel. Biblicus Mexico currently has six new applications to review and, if scholarships are awarded, there is a great need for more prayer partners and mentors.

Mission South

Partnerships located in Mexico and along the South Texas Border, focusing primarily on education, church planting, and discipleship. More information on ministry partners can be found at fpcsanantonio.org/global-missions.
