500 for the FIVE

What is 500 for the FiVe?

If 500 supporters of the Memphis School of Preaching would contribute $25 per month, it would provide $150,000, which is needed to cover five major expenses... the FiVe. Giving less than a dollar per day (less than the price of a cup of coffee or a soft drink) can make an eternal difference in furthering the work of the Lord. Thank you for considering becoming one of the 500 for the FiVe. Those expenses are:


The Yokefellow is a free publication of the Memphis School of Preaching. The cost of the printing and distribution is approximately $35,000 - $40,000 per year.

Polishing the Pulpit

As a part of the curriculum, MSOP students annually attend PTP. For this week long event, the students/their families must raise funds for travel, meals, lodging, and registration fees. This represents a need of $12,000 in addition to the amount raised by the students.


This spiritual training camp for teenage boys and girls is conducted each June on the MSOP campus. The camp is tuition free, but the costs of conducting the camp (feeding and transporting nearly 150 campers for an entire week, etc.) represents $13,000.

N.B. Hardeman Library

The Memphis School of Preaching is extremely blessed to be the location of the N.B. Hardeman Library. The purchasing of books, periodicals, shelving, stocking, and staffing of the library represents an investment of around $60,000 per year.

MSOP Lectureship

The lectureship is a spiritual blessing for hundreds of alumni and friends. This investment is well worth the good that it does for the souls in attendance. The annual cost is approximately $25,000.
