Wabash College supports the coordination of the Early Career Pastoral Leadership Development Initiative of Lilly Endowment Inc by convening representatives, coordinating site-visits and sharing resources with fifteen other grant recipients.

These colleges, universities and seminaries have been awarded grants to establish Pastoral Leadership Programs for talented younger pastors within their geographic locations. A yearly gathering brings together leaders and participants to share ideas and seek best practice in their newly formed and ongoing Early Career Pastoral Programs.
