Young Clergy Initiative grant will support internships for students preparing for ministry
Pfeiffer University has been awarded a $77,885 grant from the Young Clergy Initiative of the General Board of Higher Education & Ministry, United Methodist Church (UMC), to implement the Lampstand Internship Project, a new university-based program that pairs undergraduate students with paid internships at UMC churches and their partner organizations in the Western North Carolina Conference. The grant is one of 46 awarded from 164 applications to the Young Clergy Initiative, which aims to increase the number of young clergy in the UMC and support those from this population already serving the denomination.
The purpose of Pfeiffer University’s Lampstand Internship Project is to prepare students to discern and explore the call to lifelong ministry through engagement in innovative, community-based learning experiences. It aligns with Pfeiffer’s strategic positioning as a higher education leader in extraordinary hands-on, experiential and mentored learning and a significant contributor to strengthening the United Methodist denomination.
