The Preaching Congregation

Compelling Preaching

The Preaching Foundation received a nearly $48,000 Phase 1 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. as part of their Compelling Preaching Initiative. This will fund the development of a multi-year grant proposal for a sustainable program to elevate and support compelling preaching in the Episcopal Church.

A comprehensive study is in the field to provide background data on:

  • clergy and lay leaderships’ attitudes toward preaching
  • the current state of ministry
  • support needs in the current environment

The Lilly Endowment anticipates announcing grants toward the end of 2022. Stay tuned!
