Lifelong Learning Grants
Through the years, the Foundation has provided over a million dollars to support educational events, workshops, and seminars which cover a wide range of topics and serve anywhere from 10 to more than 200 people. Teaching elders, commissioned pastors, church staff members, and lay leaders all greatly benefit from these events. View the 2023 Lifelong Learning Events at the right.
2024 Lifelong Learning Program Grant — OPSF’s Lifelong Learning Program Grant provides funds to Presbyterian (USA) institutions, including mid-councils, colleges, and camps and conference centers.
- Grants of up to $15,000 will support educational events, workshops, programs, and seminars which equip congregational leaders, enrich congregational vitality, and strengthen denominational ties. Priority is given to funding programs which demonstrate the capacity to support and sustain congregational ministry leaders (ordained and non-ordained).
- We want our funds to serve congregations and congregational leaders to the greatest effectiveness, so we are here to dialogue about your potential program. To talk about your potential program or brainstorm before or during your application process, reach out to OPSF’s president, the Rev. Shelli Latham.
