Ministry Resource Center


Imagining Pathways Together: Find Your Voice in a Life of Ministry

We’re here to provide a network of friends, to imagine together the pathways that lead to community transformation. That’s true whether you are a seminarian in the process of discerning a call, a church dreaming of new ways to grow, a non-profit planning for the challenges of the future, or another Christian community seeking to be faithful to the meaningful work God has given you. We’re here to help and listen.

The Ministry Resource Center provides tools for placing and supporting alumni and others in ministry, particularly within the independent Christian churches of the Stone-Campbell movement.

The Center is part of Lilly Endowment’s Thriving in Ministry initiative that supports a variety of religious organizations across the nation as they create or strengthen programs similar to ours. This program, like others, helps ministers build relationships with experienced clergy who can serve as mentors, guiding them through key leadership as they serve God’s church.

The Ministry Resource Center seeks to be a bridge that connects new minister to mentor, pastor to pastor, and minister to Christian community.

Placement Program

Connecting ministers with Christian communities in meaningful ways


Mentoring Program

Connecting recent seminary graduates with seasoned ministers for counsel and support



Offering a time of renewal for established ministers to gain a fresh perspective on their call



In lieu of our Friday Virtual lunch, we want to support you in taking Good Friday as a day for personal retreat.  Here is a small two-page pdf, with links included for scripture verses. Whether you decide to go for a walk, sit outside or sit in your home, may you find love at the cross of Jesus.


Churches everywhere are concerned about reduced ministry capacity during COVID-19. As ministers, one of our greatest challenges is continuing the mission of the church in the face of the unknown. We want to empower you to prepare your church to not just survive, but to thrive and grow in that space.
