Pastoral Study Project Grants
The Pastoral Study Project Program offers pastoral leaders opportunity to conduct serious investigation of issues related to Christian faith, life and ministry. Grants up to $15,000 are available for study projects involving full or partial leave from responsibilities of ministry. The PSP program seeks to:
- Support the intellectual work of pastoral leaders who have the capacities for research, teaching, and writing that can reach broad audiences;
- Support first-rate inquiry and dissemination about (a) Christian faith and life, (b) religious institutions, and (c) pastoral leadership, so that the faith and life of all Christians, the vitality of their institutions, and the work of pastoral leaders might be strengthened;
- Identify pastoral leaders already working on these issues; and
- Generate a broader conversation in the American academic and church communities about the nature of and challenges to contemporary Christian life, its institutions, and its leaders.
