The Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Programs at Christian Theological Seminary provide funds to congregations to support renewal leaves for their pastors. Congregations may apply for grants of to $50,000 to underwrite a renewal program for their pastor and for the pastor’s family, with up to $15,000 of those funds available to the congregation to help cover costs for ministerial supply while the pastor is away.

According to a news release from Christian Theological Seminary, there is no cost to the congregations or the pastors to apply; the grants represent the Lilly Endowment’s continued investment in renewing the health and vitality of American Christian congregations.
