About Money Matters for Ministry


Lilly Endowment LogoThanks to a grant provided by Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment, Inc., Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary offers a series of workshops throughout the academic year designed to address economic and administrative challenges that face future ministers and faith leaders such as budget-setting, financial reporting and accountability, personal/church/nonprofit tax-filing, starting a small business, developing social media strategies, and live-streaming/video recording of services.


Details on Louisville Seminary's 2017-2018 Money Matters for Ministers Series are below.
