First Season Project

The purpose of the First Season Project is to strengthen the life and leadership of local congregations by accompanying and supporting new pastors during their transition into ministry after seminary.

The First Season Project supports new pastors, both young and second-career, in the first 3-5 years of their transition into ministry following seminary. Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis sponsors the First Season Project. The Project is made possible through support from Lilly Endowment Inc.

We encourage you to explore the program and to reach out if you have questions or an interest in applying
