The John Eckrich Scholarship Fund
Every church worker would benefit from a Grace Place Wellness Retreat…
…Some can’t afford to attend.
Our dream at Grace Place Wellness is that every church worker could attend a Grace Place Wellness Retreat, but sometimes the financial need gets in the way.
In honor of our founder, Dr. John D. Eckrich, the John Eckrich Scholarship Fund was initiated in September, 2015. These monies will be used to assist pastors, their wives and other church workers to experience a Grace Place Wellness Retreat regardless of their own financial limitations. Thank you for supporting church workers by promoting the legacy of “the man behind the mission”.
Grace Place Wellness Ministries achieves its mission through the faithful generosity of organizations, congregations and individuals who provide the resources needed for us to provide for and carry out our ministry among our Lutheran pastors and professional church workers.
Your role as a partner in support of our Lutheran pastors and professional church workers ultimately touches the people who will hear the Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ proclaimed and taught by healthy pastors and professional church workers we care for.
And now, friends, we ask you to honor those leaders who work so hard for you, who have been given the responsibility of urging and guiding you…Overwhelm them with appreciation and love.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
