Harold Penner Endowed Seminary Scholarship

The Harold Penner Endowed Scholarship was established in 2016 by family and friends in memory of God's faithful servant, Harold Penner. Harold's driving passion throughout his life; and final days was to share the good news of God's unfailing love and forgiveness for each of us. Those bright blue eyes and strong voice would come to life when talking about his favorite topics, cherishing family, living with intention and integrity, and choosing joy in all circumstances.
