This form is for an SPRC chair or representative to fill out to approve their clergyperson for the Non-Profit Church Leadership Certificate Program, a collaborative partnership between Dakota Wesleyan University (DWU) and the Dakotas-Minnesota Area of the United Methodist Church with support from the Lilly Initiative. For your clergyperson to participate if he or she is selected, your church (or churches, for multi-point charges) would need to contribute $500. This is in addition to $4,000 that would be provided by the Lilly Initiative and $500 that the clergyperson would contribute from his or her personal funds.The program will begin in July 2019.
Affirmation of responsibility
I understand that my church (possibly in conjunction with other churches, for multi-point charges) is responsible for contributing $500 for my clergyperson to participate in the program, and I affirm that we are committed to doing this if my clergyperson is accepted into the program. I understand that my clergyperson will also be required to contribute $500 from his or her personal funds.
