2014 Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs is Now Accepting Applications--Deadline is April 9 2014

Application materials for the 2014 Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs are now available at Congregations have the option this year of applying online or via paper copy.

The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs seek to strengthen congregations by providing opportunities for pastors to step away briefly from the persistent obligations of daily parish life and to engage in a period of renewal and reflection. Renewal periods are not vacations, but times for intentional exploration and reflection, for regaining enthusiasm and creativity for ministry, for discovering what will make the pastor’s heart sing. Through funding from Lilly Endowment, Christian Theological Seminary will provide grants of up to $50,000 each directly to congregations for the support of a renewal program for their pastor.

Applications are due by April 9, 2014.

If you are unable to download the application packet and would like a copy mailed to you, please contact the Susan Barton-Nonno, Southern Ohio Synod Communications Director, at or 614.464.3532. We will be happy to mail the application packet to you.
