Thriving Congregations, Ep. 1 "THE GRANT"

Welcome to the Thriving Institute! Meet our Director, Rev. Dr. Trisha Welstad, our Project Lead, Dr. Leah Payne, and one of our Assistant Directors, Toni Huynh.

Come catch the vision for the Thriving Congregations Lily-Endowed Grant from Portland Seminary - to enhance and sustain the conditions needed for pastors to thrive in congregational leadership and thus enrich and sustain the vitality of the congregations and parishes they serve. The Thriving Institute embodies discipleship! We want to empower, equip, serve, and train ministers and their congregations to say yes to the call God has on every church for their specific context, congregation, and passions.
