Central Seminary is proud to announce the recipient of the Dale Goetz Christian Leadership Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded at our Fall Conference to an upperclassman in the MDiv program who best exemplifies the qualities of Christian leadership. This year’s recipient is Tim Bonebright, the current pastor of Goodland Bible Church in Goodland, KS.

The scholarship is named after Chaplain Dale Goetz, who received his MDiv from Central Seminary in 2000. After serving as a pastor in White, SD, Chaplain Goetz became a chaplain and in God’s bitter providence he was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2010, the first Army chaplain to die in combat since Vietnam.

At Central Seminary, we are grateful for all our donors who fund scholarships that help reduce tuition costs for our students. The Dale Goetz Christian Leadership Scholarship is particularly significant as it honors the memory of a courageous and selfless Christian leader.
