Presbyterian Foundation Accepting Applications for Church Financial Leadership Grant Program

April 25, 2017
The Presbyterian Foundation is accepting applications for a newly established Church Financial Leadership Grant. Grant applicants must be a pastor, commissioned lay pastor (CLP), or leader of a 1001 New Worshiping Community within the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Funds are available for those pastoral leaders seeking to gain a better understanding of church financial vitality and management of their congregations. 

The Church Financial Leadership grants are matching funds, and applicants must provide the source(s) for the other half of expenses. Eligible expenses include registration fees, transportation, lodging, meals and other expenses for approved church financial leadership events, training and continuing education opportunities. Applications are available at presbyterianfoundation.org/financialleadership.

The Church Financial Leadership Grants will enable pastors to institute best practices for church financial leadership, introduce them to new models of giving and stewardship, and offer new ways to talk about money and form generous disciples within their church. 

“The Presbyterian Foundation believes that church vitality is connected to strong and thriving pastoral leadership,” says Rev. David M. Loleng. Loleng is director of Church Financial Literacy and Leadership, and oversees the Foundation’s programs and services to help build pastors’ confidence and training around financial leadership and management of their congregations. “This grant program is a first step toward effectively changing church culture toward healthier understanding and practices of church financial administration and leadership.”

The grants were made possible from the Foundation’s work as part of a generous grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.’s National Initiative to Address Economic Challenges Facing Pastoral Leaders.
