The College of Biblical Studies: Students Overcoming Father Absence through Scholarship Program

FAITH NEWS SERVICE – Houston, TX – Students of the College of Biblical Studies are eradicating father absence through a tuition-paid scholarship designed to address and overcome the plight of children growing up without a positive father figure. Emerging Leaders is a scholarship program for young men 17 – 30 designed to address the father absence epidemic in communities around the nation.

The Emerging Leaders program has been established to support, counsel, mentor, and provide a tuition-paid, accredited degree to young Christian men who meet eligibility requirements. Research and data show father absence negatively affects children socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Father absence is a key factor in a life of poverty, familial abuse and neglect, and incarceration.

“Father absence is a worldwide epidemic changing the framework of society in a devastating way,” said CBS President Dr. Bill Blocker. “This crisis first affects the family and then the community. It is such a serious crisis affecting all areas of society that we must address it head-on.”
