Phillips Awarded Grant from Lilly Endowment’s Nurturing Children Through Worship and Prayer Initiative
Phillips Theological Seminary has received a grant of $1,236,483 from Lilly Endowment Inc. to help establish the Worshiping with Children: Imaging and Imagining the Presence of God program.
The program is funded through Lilly Endowment’s Nurturing Children Through Worship and Prayer Initiative. The aim of the national initiative is to support faith-based organizations as they help children grow in faith and deepen their relationships with God.
“When I was sent the information about the initiative, I felt excited about putting together a proposal centered on worship and the arts,” said the Rev. Allie Utley, Ph.D. “My hope is that I can equip church leaders in cultivating meaningful and moving sacred spaces through which children can come to know the Holy.”
