$1 Milion to lPortland Seminary, in partnership with the George Fox University College of Christian Studies

The Lilly Endowment is making more than $20 million in grants through the Thriving in Ministry Initiative.

The institute will aim to provide spaces for restoration, nurture of spiritual disciplines, and the development of peer networks to support pastoral thriving in ministry. The inaugural pastoral cohort will launch in the summer of 2018. The five primary principals of the grant – Loren Kerns, Roger Nam, Leah Payne, Erica Ramirez and Trisha Welstad – will partner with local churches and denominations to design and fill the cohorts. Each cohort will meet on the Oregon Coast for four-day workshops over two consecutive summers. [Article
