Knox receives Louisville Institute project grant

Dr. Nam Soon Song

Principal John Vissers is pleased to announce that Knox College, in collaboration with the Asian-Canadian Centre for Theology and Ministry, has received a grant of $30,000 USD from the Louisville Institute to conduct a research project on “Challenges and Opportunities for Asian Canadian Immigrant Churches with First and Second Generation Congregants.” Knox’s Ewart Professor of Christian Education and Youth Ministry Dr. Nam Soon Song will be the lead investigator; Rev. In Kee Kim (St. Timothy Korean Presbyterian Church), Dr. Dong Ha Kim (Knox College’s Interim Director of Academic Programs and Director of the Asian-Canadian Centre for Theology and Ministry), and Prof. Ben Kuo (University of Windsor) will also serve as researchers. The duration of the grant and study will be January 2018 to December 2019.

Through its Project Grants for Researchers Program, the Louisville Institute supports initiative strategies for investigating adaptive challenges faced by North American Christianity. Grants up to $30,000 support a diverse range of projects that may involve independent study, short-term research, consultation, or collaborative inquiry. The Project Grant for Researchers program is open to both academic and pastoral leaders in the United States and Canada.

Louisville Institute is funded by the Religion Division of Lilly Endowment and based at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary (Louisville, Kentucky). The Institute’s fundamental mission is to enrich the religious life of North American Christians and to encourage the revitalization of their institutions, by bringing together those who lead religious institutions and those who study them, so that the work of each might inform and strengthen the other.
