Grants available for clergy renewal leaves
Program for pastors, congregations funded by Lilly Endowment
January 2, 2014
The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs at Christian Theological Seminary is accepting proposals for grants to fund “clergy renewal leaves” for congregations and their pastors.
Under the program ― underwritten by the Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment ― congregations may apply for grants of up to $50,000 to underwrite a renewal program for their pastor and for the pastor’s family, with up to $15,000 of those funds available to the congregation to help cover costs for ministerial supply while the pastor is away.
There is no cost to the congregations or the pastors to apply; the grants represent the Endowment’s continued investment in renewing the health and vitality of American Christian congregations.
