Ministry is filled with wonderful blessings and unique challenges that only others doing the same work can truly understand. Peer Learning Grants enable CRC pastors to gather for support, learning, encouragement and prayer over a period of about a year. Funds may be used for expenses such as retreats, books, meals and conference costs. Typically, there are four to eight group members who design their learning and time together. If you're looking to foster health in your ministry, life and relationships and nurture your wellbeing, check out the application form and overview document. Proposal deadlines are May 1 and November 1. If you need any assistance in preparing your proposal, contact the Sustaining Pastoral Excellence office at [email protected].
