Fellowship

The PAX Fellowship trains the nation's emerging BIPOC justice-minded adults (aged 25-35) at the intersection of contemplative formation and vocational development. This seventh-month fellowship provides teaching, mentorship, peer discussion, and experiential projects facilitated by world class faculty to foster God’s shalom and justice in the world.

PAX isn't merely informational, it's transformational media that invites all God's children to see themselves in the story of the divine, not divorced from the majority narrative. It gives a voice and platform for critical voices for this cultural moment.

In this moment, many are deconstructing their Christian faith in light of complex issues of race and justice. Unfortunately, few resources exist which can help people navigate this thorny terrain and reconstruct a healthy faith in Jesus. PAX is one of the few places I trust to refer those on this journey.

PAX has equipped our congregation to have biblically rooted, gospel-centered, culturally informed conversations with people from our community. Most of our neighbors have suffered injustice and live without peace. Many know the name of Jesus, but don't know that he wants to bring them healing and hope. PAX prepared us to contextualize the message of Jesus to speak the language of our neighbors with truth and compassion.
