The Pastor Delasie Dela-Seshie Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Pastor Delasie Dela-Seshie, who in February 2010, passed away from cancer.
Pastor Delasie came to America with his family in 1985 to follow the call on his life to have a ministry in the United States. He pastored for 30 years and was a beloved Principal of Amazing Grace Christian School for 12 years. During his time in ministry and leading Amazing Grace he made a great impact on many lives, as well as the surrounding community. As a father of 6, Pastor Delasie's legacy continues today, through not only his children but also through his wife Pastor Margaret Dela-Seshie, who continues to lead their ministry; All Grace Harvest Church.
Each year a $1,000.00 scholarship will be awarded to up to two promising high school seniors/undergraduate college students or $1500.00 to a student studying Theological and ministerial studies. One student who is residing in United States of America and student who is a resident of Ghana, West Africa. To be considered for the Scholarship applicants may be attending any public, private or parochial school within the United States or Accra Ghana. Well-rounded high school seniors and/or Freshman college students who demonstrate a commitment of volunteer service to our community are encouraged to apply.
Awarding of the Pastor Delasie Dela-Seshie Memorial Scholarship is contingent on several criteria including acceptance to and enrollment in a two- or four-year college, and a complete application and two letters of recommendation. Additionally, applicants are required to submit an essay demonstrating their passion to serve God through their chosen career path. This essay should 500-750 words and sent as a Word Document. The Scholarship applicants can also include a 1-3-minute video sharing why the scholarship would be impactful for them.

11 Oh, that you would bear with me in a little folly—and indeed you do bear with me. 2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the [a]simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!
