The Living Tradition Fund
The 1988 General Assembly established the Living Tradition Fund and requested that "Ordination and Installation Services held in member societies include an offering" to the fund. Over the years, that request has become a tradition among us.
Income for the fund comes from individual gifts, offerings at Installations, Ordinations and other milestone occasions, and from two services at General Assembly—the Ministers Association worship service during Professional Days, and the Service of the Living Tradition.
The Living Tradition Fund provides three types of support for ministry:
- need-based scholarships for theological students who have completed a full year of theological education;
- new minister assistance to reduce the burden of high educational debt and repayment;
- grants to ministers for emergency assistance.
The generosity of individuals, congregations and districts helps to strengthen and support our professional ministry by keeping this important resource available.
