The Duke Endowment awards grant to The Village Church for “Ministering to a Church in Change”

004The Village Church, a student-run, United Methodist congregation on Pfeiffer’s Misenheimer campus, has been awarded a grant from The Duke Endowment to develop and implement Ministering to a Church in Change, a leadership program for clergy and lay church leaders the Uwharrie District of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. The program will provide the training and tools necessary for boosting church vitality in congregations throughout the district.

With national and local trends indicating substantial declines, particularly in rural congregations, in baptisms, professions of faith, mission participation and other criteria that reflect a church’s ability to “…make disciples and transform the world,” as church vitality is generally defined, there exists a need for comprehensive and cost-effective training and education programs for church leaders to address and reverse decreased levels of engagement among their members.
