Student Leader Sponsorship Program Explained
IBC Students are young men and women attending Gospelink's International Bible College in Zambia, Africa. For $50.00 per month, you can partner with one such student, enabling them to grow their roots deep in God's Word and get equipped for ministry. Each Student Leader is allowed only one (1) sponsorship. Sponsors may partner with either male or female Student Leaders.
The Student Leader Sponsorship is open-ended. If a sponsorship must be ended prior to the Student Leader’s graduation, sponsors are asked to give as much notice as possible (to allow the time needed for Gospelink to secure another sponsorship for that Student Leader). When a Student Leader graduates, the sponsor will be contacted to determine if they would like to: continue assisting their Student Leader (if their Student Leader is entering into full-time ministry), begin assisting another Student Leader, or discontinue their sponsorship altogether.
The Student Leader Sponsorship funds are designated like the other sponsorship funds offered through Gospelink (80% for the Student Leader; 20% for accountability and administration). The sponsorship portion designated for the Student Leader is used to cover their monthly food, water, housing, sanitation, electricity, transportation, hygiene supplies, educational supplies, medical supplies and some textbooks. In addition to these expenses, the Student Leader also receives a small monthly allowance.
The Student Leader Sponsorship funds may be donated monthly, quarterly, or annually. (If desired, an Electronic Fund Transfer Program, or EFT, is available for the sponsor’s convenience.)
Sponsors will receive a quarterly report from the Student Leader they sponsor. Occasional photographs may accompany the report. If desired, sponsors may write their Student Leader. Any correspondence should be sent through Gospelink's main office in Virginia. If desired, sponsors may also visit their Student Leader at the International Bible College in Zambia. This trip is typically scheduled in conjunction with a regular mission trip conducted by a Gospelink USA mission representative. To see upcoming trips which have been scheduled, click here.
