Shaping Ministry for the Next 25 Years May 5, 2022 By Amy Fistler Leave a Comment Dear Friend of the Collegeville Institute, First and foremost, we thank you for your generous support and encouragement for our programs. The Collegeville Institute couldn’t thrive without you! This past November, we are thrilled to have begun our second cohort of the Rural Minnesota Fellows Program, only possible through your contributions. This important program gathers pastors across Minnesota to nurture leadership and assist them in meeting the needs of their congregations and communities. Tristan English in downtown Red Wing, MN.

This fellowship has shaped my ministry for the next 25 years.” Give Now » As we near completion of our 2021-2022 program year, we are amazed to see all that has been accomplished.
