Cumberland Presbyterian Service Loan

Cumberland Presbyterian Service Loan

The Office of Financial Aid is partnering with other Presbyteries to provide service loans to MTS students who serve in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. This includes lay church workers and ordained ministers who plan on serving in an approved ministry through their presbytery. By utilizing this service loan, the student agrees that for every full academic year of financial assistance, the student will give one full year of full-time service.
