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.”
