How has your seminary experience inspired you to proclaim the Gospel in a new and different way? What is your vision for where the church need to be? Did you know that funding is available to help you implement your vision? Evangelism for the 21st Century grants are available to Episcopal seminarians, faculty, staff and their spouses/partners to develop and support the innovative evangelism required today.
Examples of recently awarded grants include: developing a program of pastoral care and spiritual resources for LGBTQ teens; developing contemporary evangelism tracts for social media; facilitating clergy training in congregational development in Colombia. Dr. Deirdre Good is currently working on a project to develop learner-centered Bible study in the parish setting.
