We are Building a Communiversity!

For almost 70 years, FTE has identified the next generation of change-makers, social justice leaders, public servants, campus ministers, pastors, bishops, scholars, and deans and presidents of academic institutions. Our distinguished alumni, partners, and leaders include US Senator Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock, Rev. Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez, scholar Dr. Monica A. Coleman, President and CEO of Children’s Defense Fund Rev. Starsky S. Wilson, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, Founder of Faith Matters Network Rev. Jen Bailey, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, President of the Interdenominational Theological Center Rev. Matthew Wesley Williams, and hundreds more.

Prior to 2020, these leaders and many others in our network primarily accessed our learnings, practices, support, and resources through in-person gatherings, fellowships, or grants. To meet the demand for a more hybrid way of connecting and learning, FTE is now offering a variety of online courses to help more young adults discern their next most faithful step.

Students who are looking for opportunities to be affirmed, equipped, or inspired in their call can enroll in the following courses:

  • Called to Pastoral Ministry: April 1-May 15, 2022
  • Social Justice and Service Ministry: June 15-July 15, 2022
  • Campus Ministry: July 15-August 15, 2022
  • Theological Executive: August 15-September 15, 2022
  • Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation: September 1-October 1, 2022
  • Theological Educator: September 15-October 15, 2022

Designed to broaden the support of emerging women and BIPOC leaders for the church and the academy, FTE’s new courses will not only help students discover their calling but also help them find community.

Students will gain access to our national network of leaders, vocational resources, discernment practices, and hours of inspiring content. Upon completion each student will receive a course certificate that can be displayed on their LinkedIn profile, demonstrating that they have not only discerned their call but have done the work to explore their next most faithful step.

At FTE, our mission is to help shape the next generation of faithful leaders. By offering these courses, we hope more emerging young leaders can better recognize what God and their community is calling them to do for a more just and equitable world.
