The 2014 application process has closed. The 2014 Fellows will be announced on May 30.
Ministry Fellows are engaged in ministries at the community or congregational level that will change individuals, groups, or communities in positive ways, impacting their ability to see and use God's gifts, bringing them into a closer relationship with God. Applicants will provide an outline of the proposed ministry, show how this helps to develop leaders in the Episcopal Church, describe how the wider Church will benefit from this ministry, and propose a methodology for sharing the knowledge, experience, or best practices gained in this project.
These projects should serve as models that can be used in different settings. Examples include, but are not limited to, pilot projects in an emerging area of congregational development, adaptations of existing programs in new locations, or the development and testing of resources designed for congregational or community use. Please note: while an individual may be associated with a church agency, it is the individual who applies to the Fellowship and becomes an ECF Fellow.
