Continuing Education Clergy Grants

The purpose of Continuing Education Grants is to support active clergy who serve in this diocese to develop and strengthen their professional and spiritual growth.

The Committee evaluates requests and provides funds based on the following:

Priority funding is provided for Parochial Clergy – particularly those who are: a. recently ordained; b. developing new areas of ministry; c. serve in congregations with limited funding.

Funding for Personal Enrichment programs (ex. art classes) is not priority funding.  Additionally, funding for retired clergy or soon to retire clergy (ex. interim ministry training), is not priority funding.  If funds are available at the end of the year, these applications might be considered.

Note: Diocesan programs not funded through the budget process should not be funded by Continuing Education Grants.

Forms for application and additional information are found on the lower right-hand corner of this page.
