About the Program


The mission of the Ockenga Fellows Program is to identify and nurture high-potential, early-career pastoral leaders during a critical time of ministry development. The program is intended to help them better engage with the culture of their churches and to address the social and ethical changes in the society surrounding around them.

The program seeks to be diverse racially, geographically (within the greater New England area), theologically, and in size and type of church that the participants represent.
