Is your congregation or a congregation in your presbytery doing innovative ministry?
Each year, Union Presbyterian Seminary awards Congregational Leadership Awards for innovative ministry for a Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) congregation. Since 1991, 93 churches in 28 states have received these awards. Each of the eight awards carries a $1,000 prize to support the congregation in its ministry.
