Small Grants

In the second year of the wellness program, pastors will work with their wellness advocates to set individual health goals designed to continue the forward progress made during the first year.

To help you achieve these goals, Spirited Life will award each participant a one-time $500 small grant to offset the costs of an array of wellness services. For example, clergy have used the grant for:

  • Gym memberships
  • Counseling services
  • Spiritual retreats and Study Leave for Ministry Professionals, a renewal program offered at Duke Divinity School
  • Personal trainers, massages and acupuncture
  • Exercise equipment, including a Wii Fit, golf equipment, mountain bikes, pedometers
  • Vacations
  • New mattresses, air purifiers, and hearing aids
  • Hobby supplies, such as cameras, fishing equipment, gardening tools, music festival tickets and half-marathon registration fees
