Christian Thelogical Seminary (CTS) through new partnership, CTS offers our pastors and ordained clergy the opportunity to apply for a sabbatical in the form of their Clergy Renewal Grant. The theme of the sabbatical is “What Makes Your Heart Sing” The Lilly Endowment supports the Clergy Renewal Program at Christian Theological Seminary (CTS).

The goal is to strengthen Christian congregations by providing opportunities for pastors to step away briefly from the persistent obligations of daily parish life and to engage in a period of renewal and reflection. Renewal periods are not vacations, but times for intentional exploration and reflection, for regaining the enthusiasm and creativity for ministry, and discovering what will make the pastor’s heart sing. Applications can be found at
