Funded Projects


Regional Center Grants

Regional centers facilitate and create hubs for academic collaboration that enhance long-term scholarly cooperation around themes related to Pentecostalism and charismatic Christianity. Regional centers seek to develop networks that can engage multiple academic disciplines from multiple institutions in the region of interest. The centers facilitate the creation of a network through consistent communication between scholars (virtual or in-person), conferences, colloquia, seminars, and publications.
