March 26 - April 4, 2019
Each spring, students will phone alumni and friends who believe in them and the mission of Kingswood. Why do we have a Phonathon? There are two primary reasons:
- Students are calling because we need your help. We want to keep quality Bible university education affordable, and we want them to answer God’s call with as little debt as possible. Accordingly, each year the university awards more than $250,000 in scholarship assistance from our general fund. Your response to the Phonathon makes this vital support possible.
- Students are calling to pray for you. Prayer is a vital part of their ministry preparation, and our students would be honoured by the opportunity to join you in praying for any needs and concerns you may have. Our entire campus will be joining us in making this year’s Phonathon a prayer campaign by praying for the requests we receive. We believe God answers prayer!
Through your partnership, Kingswood University is equipping men and women for a lifetime of service as leaders within the global Church.

Ah, March, the harbinger of great things, like spring and the Kingswood University Phonathon!
This year we would love to speak with you between March 26th and April 4th. We had great success with last year’s effort, raising $62,000.
I think your great response had something to do with the fact that every penny received for Phonathon goes directly to university-funded student scholarships. That is our commitment again this year: everything you give goes directly to help students lower the cost of their education.
More for scholarships is only one reason we commit the time and energy for a Phonathon. We also love how this provides an opportunity for you to speak with a Kingswood student. Nothing did more to cement my commitment to Kingswood than meeting our students. I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
As you talk to them, you’ll hear their heart for God and their desire to answer His call on their lives.
As well, you’ll get a student’s perspective on life at Kingswood.
We also want our students to hear what matters to you. They’ll even pray with you, if you would like. Every year I hear how these conversations have been a blessing to those calling and those called.
Be expecting a call from us some evening between March 26 and April 4. If we miss you the first time, we’ll try again later during that period.
We understand some prefer not to be called. That’s no problem. Just take a few minutes and complete the bottom response card. You can indicate the amount you would like to contribute and return it in the postage-paid envelope. You can also give online at www.kingswood.edu/giving. Naturally, once we receive your gift, we won’t plan to call unless you request it.
We look forward to connecting with you. Expect a blessing as you converse with one of our wonderful students. In advance, let me thank you for helping make this year’s Phonathon our best yet.
For the King and Kingswood,
Stephen J. Lennox, Ph.D.
