Under the auspices of this grant, Northern Baptist Theological Seminary established four institutional development initiatives over a five-year period. The Presidential Scholarship Program supported outstanding ministerial candidates and led them through a one on one mentoring relationship with senior pastors from the beginning of their student years to the transition to their first pastorates. The Grow Scholars Leadership Development Initiative of the Theodora W. Grow Center for the Renewal of the Churches conducted leadership enrichment seminars twice a year for pastoral mentors and students. The grant included support for renovation of student apartments to provide subsidized on campus housing. Finally, the grant provided staff and program support for the seminary’s Advancement Office.
