Indianapolis, IN, USA
You are invited to attend an informational meeting about the 2014 Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Program for Indiana Congregations at Christian Theological Seminary. It will be held Tuesday, November 19th, from 1 pm to 3 pm in the Shelton Auditorium at Christian Theological Seminary, 1000 West 42nd St., Indianapolis, Indiana 46208.
The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Program seeks to strengthen Indiana congregations by providing opportunities for pastors to step away briefly from the persistent obligations of daily parish life and to engage in a period of renewal and reflection. Renewal periods are not vacations, but times for intentional exploration and reflection, for regaining enthusiasm and creativity for ministry, for discovering what will make the pastor’s heart sing. Through funding from Lilly Endowment, Christian Theological Seminary will provide grants of up to $50,000 each directly to Indiana congregations for the support of a renewal program for their pastor.
Please RSVP for this information session by sending an email to ClergyRenewal@cts.edu or by calling 317-931-4225. Pastors are encouraged to bring their spouse and a representative of the congregation. Please reply by Tuesday, November 12th, 2013 and let us know how many individuals (up to three) will be attending. In your RSVP, please also share the name of the pastor, the name of the congregation, the congregation’s address, and its telephone number.
Note: Application materials for the 2014 program will be available at the Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs website (www.cpx.cts.edu/renewal) after November 1, 2013; please print out the application materials and bring them to this meeting, as we will be discussing those materials during the session.
