We have heard from Alumnus Tom Arthur, who shared that he retired in 2009 in the United Kingdom after twenty some years working with the United Reformed Church through the PCUSA Worldwide Mission program. Tom retired from his ministry at City United Reformed Church in Cardiff, which in his tenure became the only Open and Affirming church (so far) in Wales, and developed an award-winning program called Asylum Justice, which provides pro bono legal support to asylum seekers.

Many first-time pastors face a steep learning curve as they enter their first parish. Feelings of being overwhelmed can be compounded by a deep sense of isolation. The First Parish Project aims to address these realities among the most vulnerable of these: pastors under 35 years of age, serving in their first full-time pastorate and in chuches with small membership.
