Invest in Excellence

The Gary and Donna Coombs Equippers Scholarship provides worthy students who demonstrate a high capacity for growth and ministry and who have financial need, the opportunity to continue their equipping at SCS, so that no worthy student will be unable to continue their growth at SCS due to financial reasons alone.

About the Coombs'

Dr. Gary Coombs serves as President of Southern California Seminary, and has since 1993. During this time, together, Dr. Coombs and his wife Donna have labored diligently to support and fulfill the mission of SCS “to bring glory to God by assisting local churches to equip believers of various cultures and languages to live and minister biblically based on the inerrant Word of God. This equipping includes building biblical knowledge, Christian character, and ministry skills all at modest tuition.” Both Dr. Gary and Donna Coombs demonstrate tremendous ongoing commitment to ensuring that worthy students are able to continue their educations at SCS, so as to be better equipped for the work of service.


In the Summer of 2015, the SCS Board, faculty, and staff created the Gary and Donna Coombs Equippers Scholarship to honor the Coombs’ continuing commitment and faith- fulness in service, and to ensure that SCS reflects the Coombs’ commitment to the equipping of worthy students. We want to invest in excellence, and we invite you to do the same.

Nearly 30% of students at SCS are currently receiving scholarship help directly from SCS, and in order to maintain that high level of sup- port we desperately need your help. Our deepest thanks to Dr. Gary and Donna Coombs, for their tremen- dous example and continuing ser- vice, and our heartfelt gratitude to you for your prayerful support!
