New Haven Register (New Haven, CT) - - COMMUNITY -

HART­FORD — Hart­ford Sem­i­nary has re­ceived a grant of $999,790 to help es­tab­lish the pro­gram, “Thriv­ing in Poor Soil: Cre­at­ing a Pas­toral In­no­va­tion Net­work of New Eng­land Clergy.”

The fund­ing is part of Lilly En­dow­ment Inc.’s Thriv­ing in Min­istry, which is pro­vid­ing nearly $70 mil­lion in grants.

Hart­ford Sem­i­nary’s pro­gram is de­signed to build a net­work of cre­ative and en­tre­pre­neur­ial clergy nom­i­nated from across the re­gion.

The grant will bring them to­gether for reg­u­lar gather­ings, men­tor­ing ses­sions and vir­tual com­mu­ni­ca­tions. The first group will meet for two-and-a-half years, and then men­tor the sec­ond group. The goal is to de­velop an on­go­ing ini­tia­tive that will foster and sus­tain clergy in­no­va­tion and cre­ativ­ity and de­velop men­tors for other re­gional clergy.
