The Ministry Includes

The Fund regularly responds to specific opportunities to support the financial, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of church leaders with grants and scholarships.

  • HLF Scholarship of $2000 will be awarded annually to a clergyperson participating in a sabbatical program from his/her local church.

    These scholarships must be endorsed by applicant’s church. (Evidence of additional financial support strongly encouraged.)


  • Grants are awarded for seminars, courses, retreats, and workshops that are designed to enhance leadership skills of church leaders, ministers and seminarians.
  • Grant awards average $600 per grant.
  • Grant applications are reviewed as they are received.
