January-February 2016

March 31 is the deadline for young adults in the United States to apply to be part of the next class of Global Mission Fellows. Part of the Generation Transformation initiative of the General Board of Global Ministries, the mission service opportunity allows 20-30-year-olds to serve for two years in a social justice-related ministry.

Global Mission Fellows must have a bachelor's degree or equivalent life experience, commit to two years of service, serve "with" and not "to" or "for" others and be called to address roots of injustice. Those selected are required to raise $6,000.

During their 24 months of service, the Fellows have two months of training and transition, 20 months of international service and two months of an optional integration. Those selected receive a monthly stipend, housing and utilities, local transportation, relocation costs, funds to itinerate at churches and an End of Service Award. Fellows who enroll in seminary after their service may be eligible for some scholarships and fee waivers.
