Bridging the Gap

Mother Jeffries believed in educating the sisters and mothers. She also believed in the power of saving money and knowing how to handle financial business well.

Today, Mother Boyd’s desire is to continue the legacy of those before her by empowering each sister to be the best version of themselves, fused together as a unified family working toward the same goal of building up the body of Christ.

This scholarship program was conceived to honor the life and legacy of our beautiful and excellent rose, Mother Mozelle Jeffries.


Purpose of the Scholarship

The Purpose of the Mozelle Jeffries Woman of Excellence Scholarship Award is to provide each recipient with the opportunity to further their education by either obtaining a diploma in a trade

or an Associate, Bachelors, Masters or Doctorate degree from an accredited institution. The hope is that each recipient will use their learned skills to enhance the body of Christ.

The preferred recipient of the Woman of Excellence Scholarship Award will be a faithful, devoted and involved member of the True Church of God in Christ. She is also high achieving, self-motivated and aspires to obtain a higher level of education to realize her full potential.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

- Aristotle
