    Sustaining Urban Pastoral Excellence (SUPE)

    The program, Sustaining Urban Pastoral Excellence (SUPE), is an ecumenical endeavor that invites four-member partnerships of urban pastoral leaders to join together in a 6-month program, including a compensated 4-8 week "pastoral enrichment leave." Together they study a key question that they have identified in their urban ministry context and the development of their spiritual formation.

    Compensation of a $1000 per week stipend will be provided to each pastor to replace her or his salary, thereby freeing their congregations to employ temporary pastoral leadership during the enrichment leave, if necessary.

    There will be 8 cycles of study, with the first application deadline in
    January 2003, and with programs running through March 2007.

    Further information about this program is available on our website:
    http://www.bu.edu/ccrd/supe/index.html. Application forms may also be downloaded from this site: http://www.bu.edu/ccrd/supe/Applications.pdf.
