Central Baptist Theological Seminary, an American Baptist school, seeks a five-year grant for partial support for its Formed for Flourishing: Mentoring Toward Effective and Healthy Leadership program. This endeavor seeks to connect experienced pastors with new clergy and those transitioning to new ministry settings to help them understand their congregational contexts more deeply and strengthen their leadership skills. The pastors will engage in mentoring for a two-year period to build relationships and sharpen each other’s pastoral skills: the first year in groups and the second year one on one. Beyond the grant cycle, Central will launch Formed for Flourishing into regional denominational partners utilizing program participants as leaders within their own congregational networks for both multiplication and sustainability.
