In an effort to encourage better ministerial practices, the Ministers Council ABCUSA has developed the Excellence in Ministry Fund through a generous grant from Christian Theological Seminary. Grants of up to $1,000 may be awarded to local chapters who apply and are in good standing with the Ministers Council, ABCUSA. The Ministers Council believes deeply that witness that ministerial excellence is to be found and nurtured at the intersections of our 3C’s: Competence, Centeredness and Collegiality.
The goals of this grant Program are to:
- strengthen the well-being of ministers within the ABC family;
- encourage the development of active chapters of the Ministers Council;
- strengthen the relationship between local ABC regions, local Ministers Council chapters, and the Ministers Council of ABCUSA.
- develop local Ministers Council chapter regions where they do not currently exist.
It is our hope that, while sponsored by local chapters, all events connected to your grant funding will be open to all ministers and church leaders within the local ABC region. We also encourage you to complete a post-event review and summary of the project that can be shared with the larger Ministers Council community.
