In response to the growing challenges facing congregational leaders serving in rural and small-town communities, the Walker Leadership Institute is launching a fellows’ cohort to support, engage and educate these leaders for new ministry ventures.
The Walker Rural & Small Town Fellows Cohort is an opportunity to identify, develop and launch a new work with one’s congregation and with the support of a group of 8 – 10 cohort members. Using accelerated planning methods, including lean development and elements of design thinking, the process gives fellows a way to discover, design, and deliver a new offering to enhance their ministry in their current setting.
Upon completing the fellow’s process, the participants receive a certificate in new rural and small town ministry initiatives. Additional offerings focused on rural and small town ministry will be offered through the Walker Leadership Institute and Eden’s LIFE program.
The application process is open until August 20th.
