University of Mobile Calls for Shofar Award Nominations for Unsung Heroes in Ministry

The University of Mobile School of Christian Ministries is seeking nominees for the prestigious Order of the Shofar award. This award honors Alabama Baptist State Convention ministers for faithful service that might otherwise go unrecognized.

Anyone may nominate a minister for consideration. Download nomination forms at and go to School of Christian Ministries for a link, email, or call the School of Christian Ministries office at 251.442.2406 to receive a nomination form.

Deadline for nominations is March 15.

Approximately 1,800 students are enrolled in more than 40 undergraduate and graduate programs in the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Christian Leadership, School of Business, School of Christian Ministries, School of Education, School of Nursing, School of Worship Leadership, Center for Performing Arts/School of Music and Center for Adult Programs.
