Evangel receives $250K grant from Lilly Endowment

Posted online

Evangel University is receiving more funding from Lilly Endowment Inc., an Indianapolis-based private philanthropic foundation.

This time, the school has been selected for a $250,000 grant from the foundation, according to a news release issued this morning.

Funded through Lilly Endowment's Compelling Preaching Initiative, the grant funding is earmarked for the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, the embedded seminary of Evangel, to train ministers within the Assemblies of God denomination.

“Lilly Endowment has again demonstrated its extraordinary commitment to the transformative impact of preaching,” said Robert Eby, director of the Cordas C. Burnett Center for Biblical Preaching at AGTS, in the release. “This supplemental funding allows us to develop additional training materials quickly that we can distribute to pastors and leaders across the country.”

The latest grant brings Lilly Endowment's funding over the past two academic years to Evangel up to $7.3 million, officials say.
