Bringing together an ecumenical group of gifted Minnesota pastors and ministers, the Collegeville Institute Fellows Program focuses on pastoral leadership development with the goal of strengthening church leaders’ sense of themselves as civic leaders and public theologians.
By connecting church leaders to professionals from other sectors of Minnesota society (in education, business, health care, criminal justice, and social services) the program aims to foster a vision of religious leadership for the good of Minnesota, for the good of the church, and for a common good greater than both.
The Fellows Program enriched not only my understanding of my job as a minister and the context in which I minister, but it also enriched my heart as a Christian. The Fellowship’s leadership, guest presenters, and talented colleagues pushed me—mind and soul—to grow further into this fearful and wonderful calling. I’m a better pastor now than I was two years ago and than I would have been without this program. I hope I’m a better disciple too.— Shane Isner
