The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship has received a $1 million grant

The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship has received a $1 million grant to help establish the CBF Thriving in Ministry Initiative.

This grant is part of Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Thriving in Ministry, an initiative that supports a variety of religious organizations across the nation as they create or strengthen programs that help pastors build relationships with experienced clergy who can serve as mentors and guide them through key leadership challenges in congregational ministry.

Lilly Endowment is making nearly $70 million in grants through the Thriving in Ministry initiative.

The CBF effort is a four-year program that will engage 400 clergy leaders in Thriving in Ministry Groups. Each Thriving in Ministry Group is called together around a shared area of professional transition or challenge with the aim to help clergy leaders thrive and in turn enhance the vitality of the congregations they serve.
