Traditionally, student debt has been one of the biggest stresses for those in ministry. The Russell School of Ministry is fortunate to partner with amazing donors and sponsors, allowing us to keep our ministry training at no cost to our students. When a student has been awarded scholarship dollars, RSM will accept these to offset your training costs. However, the student pays no out-of-pocket dollars to RSM. Because of our unique structure, we are highly selective. We are looking for individuals who are eager to make a substantial contribution to Christ’s Kingdom.


You will never have to borrow money to take courses at RSM. Students that are accepted into RSM will receive a tuition-free scholarship. Every one of our courses is offered tuition-free. We gladly accept any scholarship from your church, but students always receive a $0 balance. No student pays tuition. How is this possible?

The RSM is a non-profit ministry school, and we are supported through the generous donations of churches and individuals. They give to RSM because they believe the world needs equipped and experienced ministry leaders. They have made it possible for you to not carry debt. Their love for Christ and their passion for seeing the world reached for Christ compels them to sacrifice regularly for you. We work to honor that trust, and we hold a high bar for those who attend RSM.
