The United Methodist Ministerial Education Fund supports clergy recruitment, continuing education for pastors, financial aid for students and provides basic support for the denomination's 13 seminaries. The Rev. Stephanie Price has always had a heart for serving others. Fresh out of college, Price took a job counseling homeless teens who felt spiritually lost. Price followed a call and enrolled in Iliff School of Theology where she focused on pastoral care. "The idea of learning how to more fully care for one another and how to more fully recognize the divine and the human in each person just has always been something to me that's not only worth study, but worth experiencing," says Price. Today Price is an Associate Pastor and the Peace with Justice Coordinator for the Rocky Mountain Conference of The United Methodist Church.
