Special Feature


As I am writing this, our panel of judges is reading through more than 60 essays submitted by high school seniors throughout our community. Each student took the time to share with us about a time their faith impacted them during their high school career. What great stories they have to tell!

Five students will be chosen as finalists in the third annual Birmingham Christian Family (BCF) Scholarship program sponsored by Judson College, Our essay winner will receive a $1000 scholarship to the university of his or her choice, and our two runner ups will each receive a $250 scholarship to the university of his or her choice.

We need your help in sharing these great stories of faith and helping us select an essay winner! Follow us on and on Instagram @CFPBirmingham to find out who our Top Five Finalists are, read their essays and vote on which on you think is best. Look for the finalists to be announced Friday March 27, 2020 on Facebook and Instagram. Voting will continue through Wednesday April 15, 2020. All finalist essays will be posted on for easy viewing and sharing. The winner’s essay and essay excerpts from finalists will also appear in the May issue of Birmingham Christian Family.

Join BCF and Judson College in encouraging our youth to live out their faith wherever they are, and may we set an example for them to follow.
