Emmanuel Christian Seminary is pleased to announce the launch of the “Ministry Fellows Program.” This program will pair students with local churches, where they can serve in a variety of ministerial capacities during the time they are enrolled in seminary.
All full-time, residential, second-year or higher seminary students are welcome to apply. Each awarded fellow will have the opportunity to receive up to $10,000 for a 9- month fellowship.
For our initial cohort, we have partnered with seven churches to create seven distinct ministry fellows opportunities. The Ministry Fellows Program will officially begin this fall, but applications are open now until April 22nd!
This goal responds to the need for seminary graduates to be more prepared for positions of leadership within churches and other ministries, and it also addresses student financial burdens. Emmanuel is committed to developing students for ministry and supporting the local church. We are so grateful for all our wonderful church partners in East TN!
This program is funded through a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc. Milligan University was awarded a $999,230 grant to support a bold and comprehensive review and redesign of its academic programs at Emmanuel Christian Seminary at Milligan to best prepare pastoral leaders for Christian Churches, Churches of Christ, and the church at large.
