The Ministry Resource Center (MRC) seeks to foster meaningful ways for ministers to connect through placement, mentorship, and continuing education.
In 2019, Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan University established the Ministry Resource Center thanks to a nearly $1 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.’s Thriving in Ministry initiative. The initiative supports a variety of religious organizations across the nation as they create or strengthen programs that help pastors build relationships with experienced clergy and access other resources to guide them through key leadership challenges in congregational ministry. This has been a grantmaking priority at Lilly Endowment for nearly 25 years. The Ministry Resource Center is just one unfolding chapter of Milligan and Emmanuel’s history of loving and serving the church.
