From Fred Bahnson, Byron Mentor:
Are you a young faith leader between the ages of 20-40 working on issues of food, health, or ecology, or do you know someone who is? If so, we invite applications for our 2018 Re:Generate fellowship.
Thanks to the generous support of the Byron Fellowship Educational Foundation and Kalliopeia Foundation, this fellowship is now entering its fourth year. This coming summer we’ll return to the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina for a week of leadership training, capacity building, networking, and spiritual rejuvenation. This unique fellowship experience is probably best described in previous fellows’ own words:
• This experience allowed me to include my faith as a vital aspect of my leadership development—Joy Williams
• I’ve never been in a group of people that so deeply cared about the environment and their faith. It’s a connection that I have long felt, but never been as encouraged to work at the intersection of before. There was no sense of desperation or self-righteousness about having to, or being able to fix it all, rather a humility and a joy in doing the work that we are called to—Catherine Goggins
• I have never attended another leadership program which so seamlessly integrated so many diverse disciplines. It gives me hope that God truly is reconciling all things and making all things new. It also validates my desire to apply more systems and ecological thinking in my church-based and Public Health ministry—Justin Fast
• The most useful thing to me overall was the opportunity to glean wisdom from such a diverse group of young leaders–so many different perspectives, traditions, and life experiences to learn from—Nadia Stefko
When and where: The 2018 cohort will meet June 10-15 near Asheville, NC on the lovely campus of Warren Wilson College.
Application deadline: February 15, 2018.
