Eastern Mennonite University seeks a five-year grant to support its Strengthening Foundations for Thriving in Ministry project. By enhancing continuing education opportunities and facilitating training for peer group coaching, Eastern Mennonite will connect local pastors, who serve as mentors and small group facilitators for seminary students, in a peer group with one another and provide training and resources for geographically scattered pastors to start up and facilitate their own peer groups. In addition, the project will create opportunities for more pastors to experience spiritual direction and participate in workshops that focus on thriving, professional transitions and peer group formation. To sustain this work, Eastern Mennonite will seek partnerships with key denominational constituencies and incorporate project activities into its operating budget.
