Harbor Christian Center has established an annual scholarship for Harbor Christian Schools in loving memory of Pastor Don Ezell who graduated into heaven on April 9, 2021, after a four-year battle against AL Amyloidosis. 


The ministry and legacy of Harbor Christian Center has been built on a tradition of dreaming God-sized visions for the future and never being limited by what individuals could imagine themselves accomplishing. Rather, we embrace God’s leading and calling in ways that were destined to fail without divine intervention… but God!


Pastor Don served as lead pastor at Harbor Christian Center in Wilmington from 1986-2018. His vision was to see South Bay changed through the hope of Christ, along with the manifestation of miracles, signs and wonders. Throughout His life, He testified over and over of God’s providence and saving grace in every circumstance… God was always faithful to show up and to do what only He could do… but God!  


The Don Ezell Memorial Scholarship will be awarded annually at Harbor Christian Schools. 

  • First prize is 100% tuition coverage, second prize is 50% coverage, and third prize is 25% coverage. 
  • Recipients must be entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade. 
  • The scholarship recipients will be selected based on an essay describing the student’s vision for the future, their need (a vision without a path – but God!) and the student’s perspective on God’s ability to provide.
