Fellows

At the Center for Innovation in Ministry, we engage scholars, teachers and spiritual practitioners in study, conversations, and program design for the future of faith and spirituality in the world. Our Fellows are pioneering new ways of teaching, serving others, and affecting political and social policies.  They serve as thought partners on emerging projects at the Center. Their scholarship, life experience, and demonstrated integrity are both inspiring and intriguing.  We are thoroughly appreciative of their participation.
