Project Name: Pastoral Excellence Program: Thriving in Ministry
Description:

Columbia Theological Seminary seeks a five-year grant for its Thriving in Ministry Initiative project, an effort to support pastors in times of personal and professional transitions.  Based in its Center for Lifelong Learning, Columbia will establish two new programs and enhance a third.  First, Columbia will offer a series of colloquies for peer groups for black pastors, Latino/a clergy, clergy serving in rural ministry settings, and pastors serving particular populations.  Peer groups will consist of 12 clergy each and will gather for two, three-day colloquies facilitated by two experienced clergy.  Second, Columbia will create the Healthy Transitions program to provide support for clergy facing forced termination from their congregational ministries.  Finally, Columbia will expand its Leadership in Ministry workshops, which provide pastors the opportunities to reflect on their ministries with peers and mentors.  To sustain this project Columbia will charge modest program fees and seek support from donors.
