Sustaining Congregational Excellence

Us Sustaining Congregational Excellence (SCE) seeks to foster health in smaller congregations — so they can flourish. It was formed to advance the denominational priority to create and sustain healthy congregations. Since it began in 2007, 66% of smaller CRC congregations (two-thirds of all CRCs) have participated in SCE programming.

Health & Renewal grants encourage congregations to think creatively about how they can nurture the health of their congregation and/or impact the community in which they minister.

Learning Events are opportunities for pastors and ministry leaders to gather for a time of mutual learning, support, and encouragement.

“I believe the SCE grant was simply instrumental in changing the momentum of this congregation and people wanted to be a part of it.”
