As I mentioned in our last post, BOW was able to give away not just one, but two $500 seminary scholarships for the fall semester to deserving women students when a generous donor designated funds for a second scholarship.
Today we introduce our second recipient, Eunice Momah. (If you missed it, read about our other recipient.)
Eunice, please tell us about yourself.
My expression of faith in Christ is a lifestyle of worship for me. He saved me, he forgave me, he is progressively transforming me and I have eternity in Christ. I’ve had (and still do sometimes) my moments of doubts and fears; doubts of his love for me and sometimes doubts of my place with God, especially when faced with difficult challenging situations. But through it all, I have come to understand that my walk with God is firmly rooted in love with and in Christ. Nothing can ever separate me from the Love of God (Romans 8:31-39). God’s walk with me has become a proof of His faithfulness.
What kinds of ministries have you participated in?
I was previously involved in my local church as a children’s service worker in Nigeria. This entails prayers, evangelism and discipleship, teaching, guiding and counseling based on the Word of God through the help of the Holy Spirit.
I was actively involved as a seminary professor in Nigeria.
While I am presently committed to my studies at Westminster Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, I participate in a prayer group in my church.
Why are you pursuing a seminary education?
The need for proper hermeneutics in the mission of the church in Africa and the world today cannot be overemphasized, especially the need for the Bible to be read and interpreted appropriately as the gospel expands in Africa. This is because many false teachers parade around with distorted theology centered on suppositions and flawed interpretations, relying upon the ignorance of the congregation. Furthermore, the conflicting differences in denominational doctrines, beliefs and practice reveal the need for a review of our hermeneutical suppositions in Africa. Contemporary Christianity in Africa tends to ignore the importance of right doctrine.
Therefore, my intent for pursuing theological education is to seek guidance and direction into the original setting of the Biblical texts to determine their relevance for the contemporary church, and also to be well equipped to answer the questions of theological truth raised by the growing population of African Christians, especially the younger generation of today.
What are your plans after graduation?
I desire to faithfully apply the biblical truth within the context of the church in the contemporary African society and the world at large; to be trained and shaped for a lifetime of service to God and to humanity; and to be actively involved in Biblical scholarship (academics) and counseling.
We are thrilled to provide you with this scholarship, and we pray that God will mightily use you according to his will by his great power.
