The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) as part of their strategy to enable and resource leadership within the church has selected the 2017 Young Clergy Initiative (YCI) grant, recipients.

This year, applications were received from every United Methodist jurisdictional conference, and of those applications, 34 grants were awarded.

Congratulations to recipients from our conference: Courtney Aldrich for the Church and Community Fellowship Program and Russell Casteel for the Nashville Episcopal Area (Memphis and Tennessee Conference) Calling Retreat for High School Students.

Award amounts vary based on project scope, and some grants are awarded funds over the period of several years for ongoing projects.
