The Lydia Fellows Program for Thriving Part-Time Ministry is an effort to support part-time (or bivocational) clergy in New England by

  • increasing connectivity with other pastors,
  • strengthening confidence and self-esteem, and
  • providing opportunities for professional growth through financially compensated fellowships.

The program will form cohorts of up to 10 part-time pastors each who will meet for two years for retreats, dinners and peer-coaching.

The first cohort of Lydia Fellows will launch with a retreat in the Fall of 2019.

For more information on participating or nominating a Lydia Fellow, please contact Rev. Carrington Moore, Lydia Fellows Program Director.
