This fund was established in 2011 by Victoria Schwab in memory of her husband, John Schwab (1957-2008), a member of Holy Scripture-Fort Wayne, Indiana. “Being a lifelong WELS member had given him a deep and abiding faith that held him up, especially through difficult times of his life,” said Victoria. “He was so grateful for that, and he had an incredible attitude of service and humility.” Mr. Schwab was very supportive of young people who chose to attend Martin Luther College and excited about what they could do for the Lord with their lives. He especially appreciated those “who may not have been at the head of their class but had a heart for service,” said his wife.
Proceeds from this fund will be given to those who have demonstrated within their congregations a servant’s heart and who wish to attend Martin Luther College in order to continue their service and glorify their Lord by sharing the gospel through the public ministry.
