BRIEF: Union Presbyterian Seminary gets grant to aid small-church ministers
Mar 22, 2013 (Richmond Times-Dispatch - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Union Presbyterian Seminary has been awarded a $250,000 grant to prepare ministers to serve in small churches with limited budgets.
The grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. will support the seminary's new Church-Serve Initiative, designed to address the economic challenges facing seminary graduates called to serve in a small church.
The multiyear grant will generate start-up funding and provide an opportunity for the seminary to evaluate the effectiveness of the initiative.
The program was developed to relieve some of the financial burdens seminary graduates face while providing training focused on the challenges of small churches.
