Bethany Fellowships, affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), seeks a five-year grant for partial support to expand its Living With Integrity: Bethany Ecumenical Fellows Program, a mentoring and spiritual leadership development program for young clergy in the first years of congregational service. The Bethany Fellowships program is a four-year leadership development experience for new pastors that provides them with wise mentors, engages them in spiritual practices and prepares them to lead congregations within the fluid and turbulent environment of our time. The grant will assist Bethany Fellowships in expanding its program to involve ecumenically diverse groups of young clergy. During a four-year period, pastors will participate in eight retreats to engage peer colleagues, seasoned pastors and innovative leaders in in-depth explorations of leadership challenges and best practices. Between retreats, clergy receive coaching from mentors and communicate regularly with peers.
