If these questions keep you up at night, we want to hear from you.
We are seeking faith leaders who are passionate about meeting young adults (23-29 years old) where they are and learning what they need and want from a faith community. The Wesley Innovation Hub is committed to ministry with young adults. We’ve learned a lot since the Hub began in 2016. We’ve learned why many 20-somethings are disconnected from the church and we’ve learned that when young adults do invest in (or connect to) a religious community, both the congregation and the young adults flourish.
Who Can Apply?
Faith Leaders interested in learning new ways to connect young adults with the whole church.
- Clergy or laity serving in professional congregational leadership
- Leaders committed to building a learning team in the fall of 2022
- Innovators available for monthly virtual courses, collaboration, and coaching beginning in January, 2023
Application deadline: October 28, 2022
What will we do? How will we learn?
We’ll team you up with two young adult Ministry Innovators who will lead you in a method of complex problem solving called design thinking. It’s a fun way to create relevant ministry with young adults, by using empathy to center the experiences of young adults in your context.
You will learn in a collaborative, virtual community- a social space to workshop ideas and learn in real time.
You’ll even have a spiritual director to guide you during the journey.
