The project is funded through a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.

New York – Union Theological Seminary has received a $1.25 million grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. to establish the Innovative Preaching and Eco-Justice Initiative (IPEJI). This landmark project will equip preachers and lay people with the tools to speak about climate change with creativity, enthusiasm, and insight – and inspire their communities to take action.

The program will be funded through Lilly Endowment’s Compelling Preaching Initiative, which aims to foster and support preaching that inspires, encourages, and guides people to come to know and love God and to live out their Christian faith more fully.
