Roy Reynolds Scholarship Fund
The W. Roy Reynolds Scholarship Fund is created in the memory of Rev. W. Roy Reynolds, beloved pastor of South Berwick Free Baptist Church, and founder of Seacoast Christian School. Pastor Reynolds saw Seacoast Christian School not only as a place of academic learning, but as a true Christian ministry. For decades, he labored faithfully to lead the school as a Christ-honoring spiritual community that would turn away no child for financial reasons. Hundreds of students have passed through the doors of the school having heard the gospel and lived out their young faith. This often continued into their adult Christian walk, with many starting their own Christian families in the Seacoast region. Rev. Reynolds offered an education that not only led to a diploma, but more importantly, grew disciples.
The legacy of Pastor Reynolds continues to this day in the halls of Seacoast Christian School, which consistently enrolls those students whose families cannot afford the full tuition.
The school steps out in faith annually, relying at the start of each school year on gifts not yet arrived to cover some of its budgeted expenses (as in most Christian ministries).
The Roy Reynolds fund is maintained by South Berwick Free Baptist Church, with an annual goal of $10,000. The funds are specifically restricted to provide tuition assistance at SCS. To that end, the school will continue to carefully screen every applicant for tuition assistance. This currently includes the use of FACTS, which is an online third-party resource that reviews the confidential financial information of applicant families, including income, taxes, liabilities and assets, and makes a recommendation to the school.
The fund will also support the school's long-term goal of reaching 20% of total revenue through giving, which is consistent with recommendations for schools, ministries, and other nonprofits. SCS ismaking progress, having reached over 65% as of March 2019 and on track toward goal.
We seek not only to sustain the school, but to plan and build a future for it that will honor Christ, continuing the godly vision that Pastor Reynolds lived out every day, for the benefit of children throughout the Seacoast today and tomorrow. Please help us reach our goal in memory of Roy this May.
