About Thriving Thursdays:

“Thriving Thursdays” events were created as a part of the Lilly Endowment Inc., grant supporting efficacy in ministry through mentoring at NYTS. The objective of “Thriving Thursdays” is to create a space for resource development for members of the NYTS community- alumni/ae and students – who may or may not be participating as a mentor or mentee in the overall Mentoring Program is supported by the grant. These will be public forums to which students, alumni/ae, members of partner churches, and members of the general public are invited. One or more notable speakers will be featured at each event, who will address aspects of thriving in ministry that is relevant to urban contexts. The themes and topics were drawn from the results of the focus groups canvassed during the planning stage of the grant of this project and will continue as new topics emerge from the research.
