Emerging Leaders Endowment Programs
The Texas Youth Academy is a unique community for current 10-12th grade students to illuminate deeper discipleship.
College Pastoral Internship
The College Pastoral Internship Project 2.0 (CPIP 2.0) is designed to encourage a diverse group of gifted young candidates to enter pastoral service in the Texas Annual Conference.
The Ambassadors’ Grant was created to encourage young people to consider ministry by reimbursing out of pocket seminary tuition, fees, and book costs incurred by promising young clergy entering the Texas Annual Conference.
Advancing Pastoral Leadership
Created out of a deep concern for the mission of the church to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world, the goal of the program is to assist emerging clergy leaders in developing their capacity for fruitful leadership.
