Fall Update From The Changemaker Initiative

Our second group of Changemaker Fellows has launched! The cohort of 14 people ranges in age from mid-twenties to late seventies. They represent four churches in addition to LAUMC. The Fellows are meeting twice a month to discover how they can use their passions, yearnings, and faith to make an impact in the world.

One big difference with this cohort is that Fellows do not need to have a project in mind when they begin—the Fellowship includes exercises and time for discernment to figure out a project theme and idea. So instead of asking the Fellows, “What is your project?” try asking them, “What are you learning?” or “What are you discovering?”

Photos and descriptions of each new Fellow are available at The Changemaker Initiative’s website. Thank you for your prayers for this group of folks who are risking something big for something good!
