Become a Changemaker Fellow for Fall 2019
Fellows are selected through an application process on the basis of desire to both explore their faith and impact the world. The Fellowship runs from Sept 2019 - May 2020 and consists of regular group gatherings that incorporate faith lessons, personal reflections, guest speakers, and group exercises. In addition there is a kickoff workshop, a weekend retreat, and a celebration dinner. As this is a responsibility to others in the group as well as an opportunity, Fellows are expected to attend whenever possible. The time commitment is expected to be several hours per month, with more benefit gained from more engagement. The program is designed to accommodate all lifestyles - parents, singles, working full time, or retired. The application time frame is:
Saturday, April 27 - Invitation session and applications available online
Tuesday, May 14 - Additional invitation session
Friday, May 31 - Preliminary group of Fellows notified
Sunday, August 4 - Final Invitation session/design thinking game
Sunday, August 18 - Deadline for all applications for Fall 2019
Scheduled events for the Fellowship include:
Saturday, September 7: Kickoff Workshop
Regular gatherings each month (one Saturday morning and one Thursday evening monthly)
January 31 - February 2, 2020: Weekend Retreat
April 25, 2020: Celebration Event
In addition we are asking all Fellows to contribute $1000 to this Initiative, as a statement of full engagement and to offset program costs. Scholarships are available for anyone who is not able to pay the full amount.
