Sustaining Pastoral Excellence: Supporting Ministry Over the Long Haul

The Lilly Endowment's Sustaining Pastoral Excellence initiative seeks to support already excellent ministry by providing the necessary support to ensure that excellence is maintained and even enhanced. Trudy Bush, editor-at-large for The Christian Century magazine, explains how 63 quite diverse forms of not-for-profit organizations including national judicatories, church-related colleges and universities, retreat centers, pastoral counseling centers and ethnic ministry centers have supported peer learning groups of ministers under the assumption that ministers are best able to figure out for themselves how they can grow and be renewed in their vocations.
