All Saints (Indianapolis), Good Samaritan (Brownsburg) and St. Timothy’s (Indianapolis) recently celebrated the completion of the Pathways’ pilot year, according to Melissa Hickman, Pathways to Vitality Program Director. The goal of the Pathways’ Pilot Parishes Initiative is to assist congregations to enhance sustainability by:
The Ministerial Excellence Fund (MEF) Grant Committee has awarded $30,000 to the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis for seminary scholarships to be used in the next 18 months, according to Program Director, Melissa Hickman.
The Pathways to Vitality Initiative with the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis now offers personal financial advising for active diocesan clergy (stipendiary and non-stipendiary) free of charge, according to Program Director Melissa Hickman.
The schedule of workshops and retreat provides time between workshops to implement lessons learned and to adapt as necessary based upon the unique needs of each Pilot Parish.
The Pathways to Vitality Initiative in collaboration with the Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) is happy to share the following schedule of free webinars. ECF's FREE webinars are a great way to get your congregational leadership teams engaged in the strategic, leadership, and financial topics that are essential to the health of your congregation.
