We believe congregations matter and when Indiana congregations are thriving, our communities are thriving too.
The Center for Congregations’ grant program supports Indiana congregations with meeting their goals through funding a variety of expenses, resources, and activities. We offer a variety of matching grants and special grant programs to allow congregations to select the funding that best meets their needs.
The Center for Congregations provides no-cost consulting to Indiana congregations to ensure you have access to the support we know every congregation needs and deserves. We listen first and seek to understand your concerns and then work to connect you with resources to help you determine the best solutions for your congregation.
The Center for Congregations connects Indiana congregations with the nation’s leading industry experts to provide practical tools and real life examples you can use in your congregation today. We offer a wide range of in-person learning experiences, virtual and recorded workshops, and on-demand courses so you can access the information you need when it works for your schedule.
A relationship with The Center for Congregations almost always starts with a quick email or a phone call and a simple conversation. That’s why we have five regional offices to serve you.
In 2021, as congregations began to reopen for in-person worship, there was an undeniable shift. A shift that required more. So, as the Center for Congregations responded, Indiana congregations expanded, rebranded, church planted and experimented with non-traditional forms of worship.
The Center for Congregations is funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc. and is a supporting organization of the Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis and Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
