Synod Ministries Board Grants

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

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.
