For 163 years The Society for the Increase of the Ministry (SIM) has been both a scholarship organization and a scholarly organization. Today SIM is a learning community of thought-leaders cultivating wisdom for the massive adaptive challenge required to secure the future of the faith, and leading that adaptive change through recruitment, scholarships, convening, consulting, and publications.
SIM carries out its mission of leadership development in three distinct ways:
- Recruitment: identifying outstanding leaders representing the full diversity of the church
- Scholarships: educating outstanding leaders representing the full diversity of the church.
- Education: convening, publishing, and consulting with outstanding leaders of the church.
