For many years, we have dreamed about having a program that would encourage young Christians to start thinking, researching, and writing in the field of Christian apologetics.  We did not feel that donated money could be used for such a purpose, and we really had no other way to do it.  This past year Phyllis Clayton's mother (Edith Lawson) and John Clayton's aunt (Connie Parsons) passed away leaving money to be used in any way we see fit. We have decided to use a portion of this money to set up two $1000 scholarships which we hope will be awarded each year in memory of these two ladies who had such a positive influence on this program.
