Multicultural Center: Resources

2011 National Clergy Renewal Program
The National Clergy Renewal Program, offered by Lilly Endowment Inc., is intended to strengthen Christian congregations by providing an opportunity for pastors to step away briefly from the demands of daily parish life and to engage in a period of renewal and reflection. They are asked: "What will make your heart sing?" They are invited to plan the steps that will make that happen. The Endowment will provide up to 120 grants of up to $50,000 each directly to congregations for support of a renewal program for their pastor.

Hispanic Summer Program
The Hispanic Summer Program (HSP) provides Master and higher level theological students and others with an opportunity to study in a Latin@ setting, with Hispanic peers and professors. The HSP, designed primarily for Latin@ students of theological seminaries' and universities' departments of theology and/or religion, welcomes up to a 10% of Hispanic ministers pursuing continuing education, too, as well as up to a 10% of non-Latin@ students involved in Hispanic ministries, communities, and/or advocacy. The HSP brings together in dialogue near a hundred annual participants from the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, from a wide variety of traditions, denominations and theological outlooks.
