Applications have begun coming in from all over the world as hundreds of young people seek a unique opportunity to become Global Mission Fellows. This rigorous and fulfilling process prepares young adults aged 20 to 30 to leave their home environments and serve in different contexts throughout the world, where they can grow in faith and leadership.

The application process opened August 2, 2017, and will be available online through January 21, 2018. The Global Mission Fellows program is an initiative of The United Methodist Church administered through Global Ministries. It was created to provide young adults with a Christian context in which to grow spiritually and combine their faith with justice making.
