Spelman College, an historically black college for women, seeks funding for the WISDOM Center Fellowship program. Building on the activities of its successful WISDOM Center (which was launched in 2003 with Lilly Endowment support), this endeavor seeks to provide African-American millennial women in ministry, especially Spelman alumnae, with opportunities for peer learning, rest and creative engagement. The program will focus on younger black women clergy who are serving as associate pastors and discerning paths toward senior pastoral leadership positions. The pastors will form cohorts and meet for one year with mentors who will lead their retreats and gatherings. To sustain this work, Spelman will incorporate the program’s costs into its operating budget and solicit contributions from donors.
