Gustavus Adolphus College has received a $1 million grant from Lilly Endowment Incorporated to support the continuing education and leadership development of pastors in southern Minnesota. The grant is part of Lilly Endowment’s Thriving in Ministry initiative. The initiative supports a variety of religious organizations across the nation as they help pastors build relationships with experienced clergy who can serve as mentors and guide them through key leadership challenges in congregational ministry. The grant to Gustavus will greatly expand the College’s Pastor-to-Pastor program to create a framework for professional development among clergy, known as the Continuous Growth Pathway program.
