Sabbatical 2023

Sanctuary Columbus has received a grant of $43,426 to enable Pastor Rich's family and our congregation to participate in the 2022 National Clergy Renewal Program.

Sanctuary is one of 168 congregations across the United States selected to participate in this competitive grant program, which is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc. and administered by Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis.

Established by the Endowment in 2000, the program’s grants allow Christian congregations to support their pastors with the gift of extended time away from their ministerial duties and responsibilities.
