The Society for the Increase of the Ministry (SIM) is the only organization raising funds on a national basis for tuition and housing scholarships available to all Episcopal seminarians. A retired bishop with strong connections to three seminaries gives to SIM because “that way I am contributing to all Episcopal seminaries.”
Beginning in 1976, several General Convention resolutions requested parishes to allocate a small percentage of their annual budgets for financial support of theological education. The first Sunday in February was designated as Theological Education Offering Sundays. Parish offering support can be made online www.simministry.org or mailed to: SIM, 120 Sigourney Street, Hartford, CT 06105.
