Thriving in Ministry is a program of the School of Theology focused on the practice of ministry and funded by a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc.
In 2018, the School of Theology received a generous grant from the Lilly Foundation to establish a clergy mentoring program. The Sewanee Ministry Collaborative (SMC) was formed and consists of 52 members across eight cohorts of clergy. Each cohort has agreed to meet together for three years, and each cohort represents one of the following ministry areas: Black ministries, Latino/Latinx ministries, rural ministries, and alternatively formed clergy. Read more about the SMC here.
Additionally, the School of Theology has launched a webinar series, “Thriving in Ministry,” focused on the practice of ministry that provides the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of voices. You will find recordings of these webinars here.
