The Spiritual Leader Development Scholarship provides funding to any individual within a Presbytery of Baltimore congregation who wishes to take part in an educational or spiritual offering that will bolster them as a congregational leader. Examples of scholarships that have previously been awarded:
- Teaching Elders attending continuing education events and spiritual direction,
- Lay leaders attending Stewardship Kaleidoscope,
- Lay and ordained individuals attending coach training and conflict transformation training,
- Staff attending APCE and Administrative Professional conferences.
Occasionally, the Commission will also consider creative applications from a single leader to provide for group resources (e.g. a pastor starting a small group within a church and buying journals for all participants). Please note that we ask all recipients to present a plan for sharing their experience with the broader presbytery.
