Episcopal Church Foundation announces fellows

The Episcopal Church Foundation has announced its 2015 fellowship awards.

The Fellowship Partners Program is ECF’s longest running program, and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2014. It continues to be one of the most exciting programs ECF has to offer. The Fellowship Partners Program supports emerging scholars and ministry leaders so they can pursue studies and ministries they might not otherwise be able to, and share their knowledge and learning with the wider Church.

“We are proud of this program,” said Donald V. Romanik, ECF President, “and amazed at the impact ECF’s Fellows have had at all levels of the Church. We are confident our 2015 Fellows will serve the Church in creative and innovative ways and look forward to creating opportunities for them to share their learning.”

This year’s awards benefit “a growing Christian base community movement … started by Latino immigrants in Greensboro, North Carolina”; the development of a preaching curriculum for all of God’s people; a network of “Innovative Leadership Rounds”; and a restorative justice process to receive Iñupiaq stories of abuse, loss, and spirituality, and to help those communities “connect their traditional practices with their Christian faith.”

Read about this year’s fellows: Audra Abt, Reed Carlson, Bob Leopold, and Colleen Swan, and find information about applying for the 2016 awards here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
