Anderson University School of Theology received $250,000 from the Lilly Endowment.

Many college students face financial hardships and that‘s no exception for those attending seminary school. Thanks to a grant of nearly 250-thousand dollars from the Lilly Endowment, the Anderson University School of Theology can help its students better prepare to become pastoral leaders.

Anderson University Spokesman Chris Williams says the grant will help clergy-in-training understand how to navigate the complex challenges that money, both personally and professionally, can present.

“Seminaries play a critical role in preparing pastors and we are uniquely positioned to address some of the economic challenges that pastors face as they prepare for the ministry,” Williams said.

Anderson is one of 67 theological schools across the country to receive the funding.
