Carol and James Lont Scholarship for the Research, Study and Renewal of Distinctively Reformed Youth Development

Carol and James Lont were nurtured in the institutions of the Reformed faith - homes, schools, and churches. This nurturing - often referred to as the 'three-legged stool' - instilled in Carol and Jim, by God's grace, a loving understanding of His general and special revelation and of the Christian faith. It formed their faith and view of life, a life of love and service. It has been the desire of Carol and Jim that young people everywhere might know the personal joy and effectiveness in society of those marked by sturdy Reformed thinking and action. This scholarship is dedicated in Carol's honor by her help-mate of 59 years, Rev. James Lont; and in memory of her helpful and loving ways with people everywhere. It is designed to assist in the understanding and renewal of a Biblically Reformed development of youth everywhere--so that they may become well-prepared servants of the Lord Jesus Christ, serving Him gratefully, always, and everywhere in His world.
