UM Partners with Strength to Stand Ministry to Award Scholarships

Kathy Dean News

MOBILE, Ala. – Thousands of students from sixth grade through college will gather in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, starting in December 2022 and January 2023 for an experience that will challenge them to go beyond the surface of casual Christianity and bring them into a lifetime commitment to Jesus Christ.

It is the Strength to Stand conference, a ministry of the Scott Dawson Evangelistic Association, and the University of Mobile is the exclusive university sponsor.

Juniors and seniors in high school who attend a Strength to Stand conference will have the opportunity to earn a $20,000 scholarship to the University of Mobile. Admissions counselors will be on hand to share information about the Christ-centered university and its more than 75 academic programs.
