The Jon and Jean Bonk International Fellowship Fund
Dr. Jonathan J. Bonk retired July 1, 2013, as OMSC executive director. The OMSC Board of Trustees in 2012 launched a substantial scholarship initiative—the Jon and Jean Bonk International Fellowship Fund. The fund enables beleaguered Christian leaders to come to OMSC from challenging situations. Currently OMSC has to turn away many worthy candidates due to lack of funding. The fund provides friends of the Bonks, OMSC alumni from around the world, and others who have admired their ministries from afar, what has been called “a concrete way of honoring Jon and Jean on the occasion of their retirement.” Jon and Jean wanted to find a way after they retired and returned to Canada to perpetuate their longtime commitment to serving marginalized church leaders and missionaries who live and minister in places where it is extraordinarily difficult and sometimes dangerous to be a follower of Christ.
