Adolph and Emma Hermann Scholarship

This scholarship was established through a generous legacy gift from the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth and Jean Hansen, to honor her parents, Adolph and Emma Hermann and their years of faithful Christian service as missionaries in China in the early twentieth century. This scholarship was funded to provide financial assistance to students of the Institute intending to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in future Christian service outside the North American continent.

Adolph and Emma Hermann served the Lord as missionaries in China for over twenty years. Mr. Hermann was a graduate of Glasgow Bible Institute and went out from England under the China Inland Mission (now OMF International). Ms. Emma Hicks was a student of Moody Bible Institute’s class of 1904, and went from the USA under the Presbyterian Board. The two met and were married in China. Two sons and a daughter were born to the couple while they served in China.

Their work in China was itinerant evangelism and support services in a mission hospital. Mr. Hermann developed a love for and skill with flowers that were native to that part of China while also forming lasting friendships and witnessing opportunities.

During one of the political uprisings in north China in the mid-1920’s, Mrs. Hermann and their children were sent to the USA with the expectation that she and their daughter would return to China after the boys were settled in school. Mrs. Emma Hicks Hermann was quoted in the Moody Alumni News during this time, “I have been a missionary in the homeland since ’24. My husband returned to evangelistic work in Chen Chou, China, January ’26, while I remain with the children, who are all in school” (March 1927). Following events during in their area of ministry in China, Mr. Hermann eventually joined his family in the USA in 1927. For the next sixteen years, they lived in Missouri and served in a Christian college before coming to Wheaton to provide a home for their daughter who was attending college.

Adolph and Emma Hermann were faithful, prayerful members of their church and of the CIM-OMF prayer fellowship in Wheaton. They supported themselves by their gardening, housework, childcare and as a railroad crossing watchman. Both friends and family knew this couple to be loving, simple living, and generous servants of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Emma Hermann went home to be with the Lord in 1964 at the age of 85 years. Adolph Hermann joined her in 1967 at the age of 87 years. To the ends of their lives here on earth, they demonstrated their concern for people both near and as far as the ‘corners’ of the world.

Additionally, all recipients must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5, able to show proof of financial need, manifest an exemplary Christian life, and show definite promise of usefulness in future ministry.

Life on the farm was hard for Agnes. During her first five years on the farm there was no electricity. She washed laundry by hand, using a washboard, and she canned vegetables and meats because there was no freezer. However, she always had a battery powered radio. She listened to Christian radio every day as she worked. And although she and her family were poor, she tithed regularly. Much of her tithes went to Christian radio programs.

John B. Willis Memorial Scholarship for Foreign Missions

This scholarship was established to honor the memory of John B. Willis, a humble and godly man who sacrificed his life in service to the Lord.

As a child, John B. Willis immigrated to the United States from Finland with his parents and younger siblings, eventually settling in Duluth, Minnesota. Following high school, the family moved to Chicago and he became active in Bethel Baptist Church, building an active lay ministry, and serving as the Sunday school superintendent. He worked for the post office and never married, taking care of his elderly parents until their death.

John Willis was an artist, and he designed and published Gospel tracts in the basement of the home he shared with his family. He would often conduct evangelistic street meetings in downtown Chicago, using his skills as a chalk artist, and handing out his tracts. Every Sunday he would pick up neighborhood children in his old Ford and take them to Sunday school. He always had room for one more child. This man was always hungry for and searching to know more of God, and he took several correspondence courses at Moody Bible Institute. During his adult life he was able to take several missionary trips east with Youth for Christ, and he fell in love with and had a burden for the people there.

Following the passing of his parents and his retirement from the postal service in 1966, John Willis went to Singapore with Christian Nationals’ Evangelism Commission (CNEC). He began leading a Bible study with a few young college students. Over a period of 37 years, the Lord blessed his obedience and burden for people to know Christ, and those few students have grown to Bartley Christian Church which conducts five church services every Sunday morning and has sent out numerous missionaries. John Willis was, and continues to be (even following his death at the age of 99), a much loved and respected founder of that congregation.

Until a few years before his passing, John Willis lived in a small room in Bartley Christian Church with a twin bed, a desk, and his beloved books. He did not even have a private bathroom, instead choosing to use the church facilities so that he might be available to anyone who came by the church seeking help. He loved the Lord above all else and was a great champion of Christian education and missions. John B. Willis was a man who was truly not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.

The family of John B. Willis intends that this scholarship should be used to assist students desiring to share the Gospel as missionaries to people in foreign lands.

Patti Bastian Memorial Children's Ministry Scholarship

This scholarship was given by Kidology.org founder, Karl Bastian (Moody alumnus class of 1993) to honor the lasting memory of his mother and Moody alumna, Patti Bastian (Leibforth) (class of 1964).  Patti Bastian loved the Lord and had a passion for ministering to women and children. It was the desire of their son to provide financial assistance to Moody students preparing for Christian ministry to children. This scholarship is to be awarded to deserving undergraduate students of Moody Bible Institute who are enrolled in the Institute’s Children’s Ministry major and are intending to serve the Lord as a Children’s pastor. 


Mrs. Patti Eilene Bastian

Patti Bastian came to know the Lord as her Savior as a young girl attending Longfellow Grammar School in Chicago. One year, she was allowed to leave the school building each Wednesday for a time of religious instruction at a nearby Mennonite church that was taught by PCM students of the Moody Bible Institute. One such day, this lost little girl responded to God’s grace to follow Jesus and took joy knowing her name had been written in the Book of Life.

In the years to come and through high school, she was taught and discipled by Christians of Bethany Baptist Church. In 1961 she enrolled at Moody Bible Institute and graduated in 1964 with a degree in Christian Education. Following her graduation, she married classmate Reverend Douglas Karl Bastian, and served the Lord as a pastor’s wife, a loving mother to her children, and in ministry to women, children, and youth. She served the Lord faithfully until He called her home to Himself on Christmas day, 1996.

It was Patti’s desire that her vision for equipping people to minister to children would be accomplished through her son, Karl. "Like David who longed to build the Temple, but was told by God that his son would build it instead, so God has told me that my son will fulfill my ministry dreams after I am gone." This scholarship is part of her vision of helping to equip and encourage those who minister to children.

Recipients of this scholarship must be enrolled in Moody’s Children’s Ministry major, be intending to serve the Lord as a children’s pastor, and have proven financial need.

Reverend Gust Emil Carlson Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship was established by a generous legacy gift from the Carlson Estate and honors the lasting memory of the Reverend Gust Emil Carlson and his years of faithful Christian service.  This scholarship was endowed to provide financial assistance to Moody’s undergraduate and graduate students preparing to serve the Lord through pastoral ministry.

Gust Emil Carlson was born on September 23, 1902, in Sumner, Nebraska, to immigrant parents from Sweden, Pontus and Hildur Carlson. Following the passing of his father when he was only 3 months old, he was raised on their family farm by his mother, and later by a stepfather. Gust and his family were not wealthy, with few material possessions, but he understood the value of hard work and accomplished the tasks the Lord called him to during his time on this earth.

At the age of 16, Gust Carlson received the gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Gust’s call to Christian ministry was more gradual. , teaching in the junior high for a few years in the Sumner school system before attending Grand Island Baptist College, which he graduated from in 1929. That same year, he also was ordained to the gospel ministry at the First Baptist Church in Central City, Nebraska. He went on to attend and graduated from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1932. Following seminary, he continued to serve as pastor of the church in Central City and began to also pastor the Stromsberg Baptist Church in Stromsberg, Nebraska.

Eventually, the Lord led Reverend Carlson to the Chicago area, where he served faithfully on the staff of the Northern Baptist Theological Seminary for a number of years before he took a serving opportunity with the Presbyterian Ministers’ Fund, a life insurance organization for minister, missionaries, and their dependent children. He eventually retired from formal Christian service, but continued to serve the Lord and others until the Lord called him home to heaven in 1991.

Reverend Gust Emil Carlson loved the Lord and enjoyed praising Him through good gospel music, which he sang and played often on the piano. He was completely dedicated to his Lord Jesus Christ, and he personally experienced the challenges many face when trying to gain a good Christian education. It was his desire that this scholarship would provide assistance and encouragement to others who have been called to the Gospel ministry, but needed financial assistance to reach this calling.

This scholarship is available to undergraduate students in their junior or senior year of studies only, as well as all graduate students of the Institute.  Recipients must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5, be able to demonstrate financial need, manifest an exemplary Christian life, and model evidence of developing the qualities of character, skills, and commitment consistent with effectiveness in pastoral ministry.

Paul Robinson at desk with plotter

In a tribute to Reverend Robinson, Dr. Joseph Stowell wrote, ‘Once in a long while, God raises up particular individuals to do something above and beyond for the Kingdom of His Son. Paul Robinson was one of those . . . A man dedicated, disciplined, and willing to believe in things beyond himself.”

As a young pastor and pilot, Paul had a vision of how the airplane could be used to “speed” the spread of the Gospel beyond jungle barriers. On April 24, 1946, he approached the Moody Bible Institute’s Board of Trustees with the challenge of beginning a Missionary Aviation training school. In his memoirs, Paul wrote of that meeting, “At an appropriate moment, Robert W. Nicholas rose from his chair and said “Gentlemen, I don’t know how you feel about this matter, but if you feel as I do, if this young man will help us, I feel that we should proceed . . .  and I should like to have the privilege of buying the first two airplanes for the program.” Today, Reverend Robinson’s dream, Moody Aviation, continues to produce young men and women who are highly skilled aviation technicians.

Recipients of this scholarship must be enrolled as a junior or senior in Moody’s undergraduate Missionary Aviation program. Additionally, recipients must model an exemplary Christian life, show promise of usefulness in missionary aviation ministry, and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3.

Stephen Yeh Sr. Scholarship

This endowed scholarship was funded by the generosity of Dr. Stephen Yeh, Sr. and his family to honor the rich legacy of Dr. Yeh’s faithful service and dedication to the Lord, and the Lord’s grace and faithfulness to His servant in life, business, and ministry. This scholarship is intended to provide financial assistance to deserving students of the Institute preparing for Pastoral ministry among the Chinese community of North America and abroad. 

Stephen Yeh, Sr.
Stephen Yeh, Sr.

Stephen Yeh Sr. was a 1948 graduate of Moody Bible Institute. Born in Changzhou, China on July 15, 1917, he went home to be with the Lord at the age of 95, August 9, 2012. The scholarship fund exemplifies one of the many means by which Mr. Yeh’s entire life was dedicated to the service of the Lord.

Born into a Buddhist family, he was initially antagonistic to the Christian faith. Eventually, acts of kindness and selfless generosity he witnessed in the life of Christian missionaries won his mind and heart for Christ. Through a series of personal miracles during the Japanese-Chinese conflict at the beginning of World War II, he made it his vision to serve the Lord through preaching the gospel, even if it meant closing down the profitable businesses he had started. In spite of many obstacles posed by the war, he arrived at Moody in 1944 with his wife and a young son, with the intention of returning to China.

After graduation, Mr. Yeh was unable to return to China because of the country’s fall to communism. He started his own business, and his family grew to include five sons. He became a very effective layperson, and under his visionary watch, the Chinese Christian Union Church of Chicago grew from a small struggling mission church in the 1940’s to a church on multiple sites serving multiple language congregations. His leadership extended to national Chinese church organizations and to Central America where he helped to found a church in Panama, now with several congregations.

In his 70’s, he spearheaded an effort to establish the Pui Tak Center, a Christian social-service organization housed in Chicago’s Chinatown. In his 90’s he became part of yet another church plant. He received an honorary doctorate from his alma mater, Moody Bible Institute, on May 12th, 2007.

All his life, Dr. Yeh was sympathetic with the aspirations of young persons who wanted to serve the Lord in ministry. Many were motivated by his example of great servanthood. It is hoped that this scholarship fund will be a lasting encouragement to such men and women.

Recipients of this scholarship must be a full-time student of the Institute’s undergraduate or graduate schools and enrolled in the Pastoral Ministry major, with secondary preference given to non-Pastoral majors. All candidates must demonstrate a commitment to and an involvement in ministry among the Chinese people and a capacity to effectively minister to the Chinese people, with intent to enter into vocational Christian service to the Chinese community of North America or to serving the Chinese abroad, and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.

W. Paul Grant African American Student Scholarship

This endowed scholarship was given in memory of Moody alumnus from the class of 1980, W. Paul Grant, and his years of faithful service to the Lord Jesus Christ. In 1977, W. Paul Grant needed a significant sum to register for classes at Moody, and on the final day of registration he received an anonymous gift for the exact amount. It was Paul’s desire to be a blessing to other African-American students in the way God had blessed him.  This scholarship is intended to provide financial blessing to an African American undergraduate or graduate student who has an enthusiastic heart for our Lord and demonstrates a burden for lost souls.


Moody Class of 1980

W. Paul Grant was born in Ohio and became a Christian at the age of 14 years. At 18 years of age, he decided to enter into ministry and enrolled in the Moody Bible Institute. While at Moody, Paul started a gospel music ministry called the Jubilation Singers. He and the group ministered at many Moody chapels, missionary conferences, and also a Sunday Night Sing. They also travelled across Illinois, Wisconsin, and Indiana to minister to those in jails, nursing homes, coffee houses, and churches. Paul and his wife, DuRhonda Baskett (class of 1979) also participated in Moody’s first black chapel in 1979.

Paul also ministered in a special way to the Evangelical Free Church of America, often leading combined choirs of blacks and whites singing gospel music and he was the first black minister of music to minister at three national EFCA conferences. He also traveled extensively, preaching with a unique and special calling for racial reconciliation.

Pastor Charles Butler, Moody class of 1981, executive director of Circle Christian Development Corporation, said, “Paul led at least fifty people per year (one on one) to the Lord for the last six years. Two o’clock in the morning, five o’clock in the afternoon, skipping breakfast, missing sleep, and he still would show up in the morning to sing, preach, and encourage. He shows me that we need to evaluate what is really important.”

Paul served as the minister of music for Rock of Our Salvation Evangelical Free Church and chaplain for Circle Urban Ministries in Chicago until the Lord called him home at the age of 31 years. During his service with these ministries, Paul organized the first choir and the first travel music ministry for Rock Church. He was also the first Circle Urban Ministries chaplain and was considered the “eyes, ears, and mouthpiece for Circle Urban Ministries.”

At the time of Paul’s home going celebration, over 800 people were in attendance and Glen Kehrein, Moody class of 1969, then executive director for Circle Urban Ministries, shared, “[Paul Grant] left a legacy of a tireless worker in God’s vineyard. None of us left the celebration the same.”

Recipients of this scholarship must be of African-American descent, currently enrolled in Moody’s undergraduate or graduate programs, and able to demonstrate financial need. Additionally, all recipients must have a burden to reach the lost with the gospel and show definite promise of usefulness in future Christian ministry.
