The Sustaining Pastoral Excellence Fund is one of the Mission Priority Funds established by
The Presbyterian Church in Canada. The purpose of the fund is to strengthen the church for mission by strengthening its ministers. To thrive as leaders, ministers need ways to nourish their spiritual lives, intellectual growth and pastoral imagination, and to care for the health and well-being of themselves and their families. This fund will help finance programs of learning, renewal and support for ministers through:
• grants to ministers for extensive study programs
• grants to ministers for new colleague covenant groups
• access to confidential assessment, counselling and referral, through an insurance provider, for actively serving ministers and their families.
