Cultivate and Support Young Church Leaders

The Forum for Theological Exploration, an ecumenical nonprofit that supports the next generation of church and academic leaders by cultivating gifted young people for ministry and church leadership from all denominations and backgrounds, invites program participants to address issues of interest to them at the intersection of theological reflection and social concern. Many of those presentations are audio recorded and archived on the internet. Explore the FTE Soundcloud page to access the thoughts of some of our nation's best future and current Christian leaders, as well as audio transcripts from FTE conferences, and keynote addresses sponsored by the Forum. For more on young clergy leadership, read our feature article, "Ten Essential Skills the Next Generation of Religious Leaders Will Need." For insight on how to encourage and support new ministers, read "Transition into Ministry Program Helps New Ministers Flourish." To help young adults find their God-given vocation, see "Best Resources for Vocational Discernment." For schools of religion fellowship opportunities and financial support, read "Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts," and our web page featuring The Louisville Institute. For help finding a suitable seminary, see "Best Sources for Institutional Profiles of Schools of Theological Education."
