Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis says a new program will identify, train and sustain outstanding ministers and pastors for Christian congregations throughout the United States.

CTS has received initial funding for its new Center for Pastoral Excellence through an $8 million grant from the Lilly Endowment. The grant also will fund other initiatives at the ecumenical seminary affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).

CTS President Rev. Matthew Myer Boulton said the center will retool theological education and provide continuing training and support for pastors after they've completed their studies.

One of the center's new programs will help religious leaders think theologically about technology and new media.
