Take on a Project to Honor Rev. Vin Walkup, Former Campus Minister
In October, 2012, the Board of the APSU Wesley Foundation launched a campaign to raise a minimum of $30,000 to fund The Rev. Vin Walkup Student Ministry Endowment.
The Rev. Vincent Walkup Student Ministry Endowment
Upon his retirement, to honor and recognize the life and gifts of our dear friend, APSU Wesley Campus Minister, Hilldale UMC Pastor and APSU alum Rev. Vin Walkup, we will establish an endowed fund to support a Student Ministry Endowment in perpetuity.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 for this endowment. Funding The Rev. Vin Walkup Student Ministry Endowment has already begun as the United Methodist Foundation for the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences voted to donate the first $10,000 and then to match the next $10,000! The Rev. Vin Walkup Student Ministry Endowment will fund external student ministry exploration opportunities for APSU Wesley Foundation students.
These scholarships will be funded by a designated endowment fund at the United Methodist Foundation for the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences specifically for the APSU Wesley Foundation. The principle will never be touched. The interest alone will fund student ministry exploration opportunities.
We Need Your Help
The Wesley Foundation Development Committee needs to create a list of potential donors and contact each by mail, phone or personal visit. It will be important to garner names and contact information from family, friends and associates.
