SMB Grants Available

for Specialized Transition Ministry Training

The Albany Synod Ministries Board provides $1,000 grants to gifted and qualified Ministers of Word and Sacrament who

  • wish to increase their skills for ministry by being trained as a Specialized Transition Minister (STM)

  • are members of one of the classes in the Regional Synod of Albany

STM training (formerly called Interim Training) is strongly recommended for clergy serving under short-term contracts in congregations that are seeking a new called pastor. However, it is a useful training for ministers serving in many contexts. Transition is commonly experienced in many congregations, even those being served by installed pastors.

The Albany Synod Fellowship Program is beginning its third round this fall, and we are excited to welcome Trey Tirpak as our Albany Synod Fellow.

Trey will be serving as a fellow with the First Church in Albany.

We are looking forward to Trey’s participation in the Fellowship Program. He will be part of a cohort of pastors who are participating in the First Call Project. As he gets started next month, we look forward to sharing an introduction to him and his work at First Church.
