Springfield, Mo.—February 2, 2009—The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS)
was recently awarded a $500,000 grant from the Kern Family Foundation in Waukesha, Wisconsin.

The grant is part of a new matching grants initiative by the Kern Family Foundation entitled, “Leading Through Change: Innovation in Theological Schools.” The purpose of the initiative is to strengthen Evangelical seminaries accredited by the Association of Theological Schools through fresh thinking about how theological teaching, learning, research, governance and administration are done.

AGTS is one of five seminaries across the nation selected to receive matching grants of up to $500,000. In 2008, the Foundation awarded AGTS a $30,000 planning grant for this initiative. AGTS President, Byron D. Klaus said, “This significant grant will help AGTS in its continuing quest to be effective in providing our supporting publics with church leadership capable to lead in challenging times.”

AGTS is one of the world’s leading Pentecostal seminaries. For more information about this grant or AGTS, contact Jennifer Hall (417-268-1024 or or visit
