CLERGY RENEWAL PROGRAM OPPORTUNITY

The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs at Christian Theological Seminary provide funds to congregations to support renewal leaves for their pastors. Congregations may apply for grants of 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.

Interested parties can find more information at http://www.cpx.cts.edu/renewal.

Uncovering Opportunity in the 'Hidden Job Market'

Ministers hold a rich bounty of skills and abilities that are highly desired by the non-profit and corporate worlds.  What is needed to make the transition from full-time ministry into the secular workplace is imagination, a solid strategy and the will. This webinar focuses on equipping religious professionals to use skills and abilities they already have to support them in obtaining employment in an alternative setting.

Webinar was held originally on September 25, 2012.
