"2013 Lutheran Church Extension Fund Scholarship winner and Concordia University - Saint Paul, Minn. student, Josef Muench, thanked LCEF and his congregation for supporting him in his endeavor to become a pastor on Sunday, January 12, 2014," said Minnesota North District LCEF VP George Miller.
Miller presented Muench with his $1,000 scholarship funds at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Duluth last month. "It was very rewarding to meet Josef and his family, and to hear the positive comments about he and his family from the congregation."
Muench is a member of a Minnesota North District - LCMS congregation. Seven LCMS districts in the upper Midwest are awarding $1,000 scholarships this year. Applications for the 2014 LCEF Scholarship will be accepted through Feb. 28, 2014. Visit lcefuppermidwest.org to apply.
