The Forum for Theological Exploration

Young people exploring the intersection between their faith, gifts and what they might do professionally, do not always consider Christian ministry as a way to make a difference in the world. Young adults need leaders who can put ministry before them and who notice, name and nurture the gifts they have for ministry.

This Recruitment for Ministry Grant provides leaders opportunities to identify young adults with gifts for ministry, accompany them in the exploration of their purpose and cultivate them for Christian leadership.

FTE awards grants to diverse Alumni and invited individuals who are leaders of congregations, academic institutions or church-related organizations.

Recipients receive a one-year grant up to $2,000 to recruit young adults for ministry. Leaders will gather annually to share challenges, best practices and recruitment resources.
