Pathways to Vitality
In the past, the Episcopal Diocese of Indianapolis has offered pathways to Vitality, a nine-month program created for directly aided congregations but open to all. Participating congregations have learned strategies for moving beyond maintaining the status quo to becoming vital congregations energized through new ministries.
The enhanced Pathways to Vitality Initiative, funded by Lilly Endowment, is a two-year program for three pilot parishes on the verge of vitality and sustainability in our diocese. It is loosely based upon the THRIVE initiative in the Diocese of Chicago.
Our Bishop, in consultation with the Canon to the Ordinary, has selected St. Timothy's as one of three pilot parishes to participate in the Initiative.
