On Friday, September 30, 2016, the Generation Transformation – Global Mission Fellow application will be available online. Generation Transformation is an initiative of The United Methodist Church, administered through the General Board of Global Ministries. The Generation Transformation initiative was created to provide Christian young adults with significant leadership development, spiritual and personal growth opportunities.

Global Mission Fellows are faith-filled young adults between the ages of 20–30 who have a passion for service, care about justice, and are committed to serve for two years. Fellows serve at United Methodist churches, related organizations, and nonprofits in justice-focused ministries within the United States or in African, Asian, European, Latin American, and Caribbean nations. The young adults work as in a variety of roles dealing with issues around migration/immigration, homelessness, children and youth, education, environmental justice, and more.

“Global Ministries is committed to offering mission service opportunities for young people all around the globe,” says Judy Y. Chung, who leads missionary services. “As young people are mobilized to serve in mission, integrating faith and justice, the movement will inspire and transform the world.”

The online application period extends from September 30, 2016 through March 31, 2017. Applicants interested in learning more about the program, the type of work available, as well as the location of potential placement sites can join a web-based informational session by registering at www.umcmission.org/gt. By joining the session, participants will hear from Global Mission Fellow alumni as well as additional information that is useful to the discernment process. Upcoming sessions are scheduled for October 11, November 16, and December 14.
