Bishop C.L. Ratliff invested her entire life to the work of the ministry. Determined to see others free from spiritual and natural bondages, she tirelessly gave of herself and her finances. Bishop C.

Ratliff Scholarship was first awarded in 1995 to three recipients.  For 2015, we celebrated our 20th anniversary and have awarded almost 100 scholarships within that time period.
