Canaan Baptist Church of New Castle, Del. has shown its support for higher education by donating $10,000 to Delaware State University.
The donation will go toward book scholarships for Delaware students. Eligible students will be able to receive as much as a $250 book scholarship.
“We support Delaware State University because we believe in the vision of Dr. Harry Williams, and support the direction and prospects of the University under his leadership,” said Dr. Christopher A. Bullock, Canaan Baptist pastor. “We believe in the power of partnership between church and state, and we believe it is critically important for students who come out of our church and might go to DSU. Therefore we want to be supportive in a tangible way.”
Canaan Baptist Church was established in 2003 and currently has about 2,000 members. Dr. Bullock is in his eighth year as the church’s pastor.
