One of the core values of all Free Methodist churches is learning. We seek to invest strategically to mature those who desire to grow in their Christian faith. Developing future leaders is critical to fulfilling our national church mission.

Having these values, faithful visionaries of our Canadian church established educational support programs, which have now become a centralized program for awarding scholarships. These are funded by auxiliary, legacy funds derived from college endowments through the Free Methodist Foundation in Canada and the Lorne Park Foundation.
