Today "Christmas" is almost lost in the "holiday tradition" in our culture. But one Bryan College tradition, I believe, honors the Christ of Christmas - Gifts for the King.
For some 60 years, the Bryan family has faithfully supported the Gifts for the King campaign to help deserving students have the resources they need to receive a rigorous Christ-centered Bryan education. More than 95% of Bryan students receive scholarships, and over half of the total annual money needed comes from your support of Gifts for the King.
Students like Ashton Alexander are grateful for the help you provide. Ashton, a junior double major in English Literature and Politics and Government, hopes to continue his studies in the fields of law and divinity.
"Overall Bryan has been an incredible learning experience," he said. "It has given me the opportunity to connect with quality people, to sharpen my intellectual gifts, and most importantly, to grow in my relationship with God."
Ashton's story is one of many. That is why I'm asking you to make your most generous gift right now, knowing you play a vital role in helping students like Ashton.
Over the years, your support has made it possible for us to prepare students for careers in education, business and the professions, and ministry. Because of you, thousands of Bryan alumni are at work as servants of Christ, making a difference in our world.
We are so grateful for your partnership with us, and pray God's blessings on you as we celebrate the Gift of the King.
