    The Troy Tofflemire Student Bursary Program – Additional Details

     

    BACKGROUND

    Troy Tofflemire was an active member of Grace Church who, after a tragic vehicle accident on Monday, March 28, 2016, was called home to be with His Lord.  Troy was an active member of Grace Church where he was a leader in the music ministry; he was also instrumental in establishing the New Commandment Men’s Ministry.   Troy’s love for Jesus and his love for music were an inspiration to the congregation. 

    The vision of Grace Church is to be a genuine Christian Community, transformed by Jesus Christ to be transforming in the world.  A key element of this is the development and training of leaders in ministry who will lead Christ’s church into the future.  The role of the Community is to assist those who are called to ministry by providing financial support for their education in this field.

    The Troy Tofflemire Student Bursary Program (the Bursary Program) has been established with a view to accomplishing a portion of this aim.

    SELECTION

    Bursary recipients will be chosen on the basis of scholastic and all-round achievement, with consideration for the individual’s financial need. Bursaries will not be awarded if, in the opinion of the Bursary Selection Board, applicants do not meet a sufficient standard of achievement. Selection criteria are as follows:

    • Academic achievement;
    • Demonstrated leadership within the church community;
    • Extracurricular achievement; and
    • Needs.

    Applications for the Bursary Program (Pages 2 &3) must be received by July 1st, 2021 for the next academic year (normally September).  Out of cycle requests are possible, and will be considered at the discretion of the Chair of the Selection Board. Incomplete applications, or those missing any required documents, shall not be considered
