More about the David Bay Evangelism Scholarship
David Bay was a well respected farmer and dairy director. He served as a director of the New Zealand Co-operative Dairy Company for 21 years, and the New Zealand Dairy Board for 12 years. David was also known for his love of God and his passion for Scripture. In 1962 he and others had the vision to establish the Hillview Trust. The purpose of the Hillview Trust was to invest funds into agriculture enterprises so the profits could go to support Christian work. In 1974 the trust purchased a property in Reporoa and converted the land into a dairy farm. Since then the trust has been using the profits from its farming operations to fund a large range of ministries.
In honour of David Bay and his vision for seeing the good news of Jesus spread across New Zealand this scholarship was established to see people who have a passion for evangelism to be equipped for service.
Eligibility: This scholarship's primary aim is to help Christians from CCCNZ/Open Brethren churches (and those with an association to those churches) to further their gifting in evangelism. You must be either within New Zealand or a New Zealand citizen to be eligible for this scholarship.

"... look to the Lord in everything. Whether you are planting your crops, or whatever you are doing - in prayer - to cast all your cares on Him for he cares for you. And to recognise that there is a Sovereign overruling hand. And it is in His hand to prosper or to humble, however He chooses."
