Calhoun Scholarship Header 3


The Dr. David B. Calhoun Alumni Scholarship has reached its goal of $50,000! This newly created endowed award at Covenant Seminary is made possible by many alumni who gave to honor the life’s work and legacy of Dr. Calhoun. His heart for students and for ministry will be remembered and carried on as new generations of students preparing to serve Christ’s church and Kingdom are blessed by the generosity of others. When Dr. Calhoun was notified of the overwhelming support of the scholarship, he shared the following:

“I want to thank you for your generosity in contributing to the Calhoun Alumni Scholarship. I am honored and humbled. The Lord loves you – and so do I!”

These generous gifts are a testament to his lasting impact – as a teacher, scholar, pastor, mentor, and friend – on the generations of people his ministry has touched. Dr. Calhoun’s example of service to God and others, and his heart for training more of God’s servants, have left an aura of grace that is evident in the support of so many. This new endowed scholarship will continue to support students who come to Covenant Seminary to prepare for a lifetime of ministry.

Celebrating a lifetime of ministry

For over 60 years, Covenant Theological Seminary has shaped alumni for ministry through a combination of academic rigor and pastoral mentorship. Covenant Seminary alumni are committed to God’s kingdom mission in the world and passionate about serving the Church with godly, wise leadership. One faculty member in particular has played a noted role in impacting alumni for over three decades: Dr. David B. Calhoun.

Dr. David Calhoun arrived on campus in 1978, began teaching church history at Covenant Seminary, and the fabric of the Seminary was changed forever.  Dr. Calhoun’s deep personal faith, commitment to students, and excellence in scholarship reflected the values and ethos that began to mark Covenant Seminary faculty for years to come. Whatever your present ministry may be, Dr. Calhoun has impacted your training and shaped your Covenant Seminary experience.

In recognition of Dr. Calhoun’s service, and with gratitude to God, we want to honor this beloved professor. With your partnership, we will create the Dr. David B. Calhoun Scholarship to praise God and honor the work, ministry, and impact of Dr. Calhoun as we encourage and support future generations of alumni to come.

"I arrived on campus in early 1985 and began to pray for guidance from God on which faculty to bring to Covenant Seminary. Shortly thereafter, I was jogging one day with David–I can still picture the spot on Conway Road–when I thought to build a theological faculty that reflected the personal faith, the commitment to students, and the scholarship that I saw reflected in him. David Calhoun became the heart and soul, as well as the model for faculty at Covenant Seminary. Join me in contributing to the establishment of this scholarship and honoring Dr. David Calhoun."
Dr. Paul Kooistra
President, 1985-1994
