ATLANTA (Sept. 27, 2019) – The Global Mission Fellows Program is accepting applications through Jan. 7, 2020. This two year program is a wonderful way for young adults, ages of 20 through 30 to engage with local communities outside of their home context, connect the church in mission and grow in personal and social holiness. All who fall within the age range and who are passionate about putting their faith into action while addressing the root causes of injustice are encouraged to apply.
The Global Mission Fellowship offers placement opportunities within the United States and internationally. Once accepted, candidates are matched with partner organizations which support community development and they enter into the faith life of the local community to form lasting relationships. Each fellow becomes a part of a cohort of other Global Mission Fellows and the group trains and regroups with the same young adults throughout their two years of service. This provides a framework of support and community for each Global Mission Fellow as they share in their individual journey.
Donations to support the Global Mission Fellows program are being accepted at https://advance.umcmission.org/p-1806-global-mission-fellows.aspx.
