For over 20 years, the Baptist Ministers' Conference of Philadelphia and Vicinity (BMCPV) has co-sponsored the Mitchell Lectureship and supported many other Seminary events and student groups. On Monday, June 28, 2010, Palmer Theological Seminary and the Baptist Ministers' Conference of Philadelphia and Vicinity, Inc. signed a partnership agreement, an agreement that established the Baptist Ministers’ Conference Tuition Discount and Scholars Program at Palmer Seminary of Eastern University.
The signing took place at Second Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Philadelphia, PA. In accordance with the newly established program, BMCPV members will be able to receive tuition discounts as high as 50 percent.
