We have launched a new partnership with the Global Mission Fellows (GMF) Program that we are supporting through our communion rail offering this month. The GMF Program of the General Board of Global Ministries is a 2-year opportunity that takes young adults ages 20-30 from both the United States and other countries, out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice as participants are active in their new local communities, connecting the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.
Come and wonder with us what further involvement for us with the GMF Program looks like. How might we invest in these young people as their lives are transformed as they work to transform communities? Are you a young adult? Come learn more about the program as an opportunity for yourself. We will have Grace Okerson and Erica Oliveira with us. Grace is a GMF from Florida serving with the NOAH Project in Detroit and Erica, a former GMF herself, is on staff with Global Ministries as the Mission Advocate, Young Adult Mission Service.
Lunch is provided. Please register online.
