The Lewis Community Leadership Fellows is a peer-learning experience offered to United Methodist clergy with demonstrated leadership ability, who have mastered the day-to-day tasks of congregational ministry, yet hunger for a more expansive, outwardly focused approach to ministry. The program seeks to help gifted clergy live into a vision of leadership that reaches beyond the typical, inwardly focused, parochial patterns of congregational life. This initiative is a pilot program, funded through the Lilly Endowment, Inc.’s “Early Career Pastoral Leadership Development Program.” As a pilot, it is currently available only to a select group of clergy invited to participate.
