LOUISVILLE, KY [SVOTS Communications] Seasoned and recently ordained Orthodox Christian priests may want to take advantage of grant awards being offered by the Louisville Institute.
The awards offer pastoral leaders the opportunity and resources to investigate issues related to Christian life, faith, and ministry. Through its Pastoral Study Project program [PSP], the Institute enables pastoral leaders to bracket daily work routines in order to pursue a pressing and significant question for the life of faith.
The Louisville Institute is a Lilly Endowment-funded program based at Louisville Seminary supporting those who lead and study North American religious institutions. The fundamental mission of the Louisville Institute is to enrich the religious life of North American Christians.
Grants of up to $15,000.00 will be awarded to support independent or collaborative study projects that privilege pastoral perspectives and rhythms and honor grassroots research conducted by skilled clergy. PSP grantees may use a variety of platforms to share what they learn with a wider audience, extending their leadership in ways that can benefit the broader Church and culture in North America.
The program is open to clergy, Church staff members, chaplains, denominational staff, and others regularly employed in recognized positions of pastoral leadership, ordained and lay, as well as ordained ministers who are not currently employed by a religious organization. The PSP grant is restricted to pastoral leaders in the United States and Canada.
Deadline for submitting applications is September 1, 2016. Visit the Louisville Institute web site for detailed information and complete program guidelines and application procedures.
